According to the Press-Citizen, 2,596 Johnson County, Iowa citizens with low or moderate incomes have filed for a one-time stimulus check of $1,400 under the state’s Direct Assistance Program.

This initiative will be funded by $2 million that the county has set aside from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Stimulus Check: Who Is Eligible? 

There are several requirements that must be met before you may apply.

Food insecurity, homelessness, and being previously disqualified from receiving federal stimulus check payments all qualify.

If you receive federal benefits such as SNAP or SSDI, you may also be eligible for this program.

The minimum annual income requirements are $45,370 for a single individual, $51,870 for a couple, and $64,805 for a family of four.

But please be aware that the application deadline was May 27.

We were able to contact a large number of folks who were qualified for and in need of assistance.”

Whether an application is accepted or rejected, all applicants will be notified.

It’s possible that your ineligibility is due to an error un the information you provided in your application.

The BOS instructed concerned parties to submit updated applications between June 10 and June 17.

The BOS estimates that between 2,300 and 2,400 locals would get $1,400 stimulus checks, which will be distributed somewhere in late June or early July.

The initial deadline of May 23 was extended because of the large number of applications received over the last weekend, as reported by the county’s Board of Supervisors (BOS).

“As the Board explained to the Press-Citizen, “we made a good-faith effort decision to extend the application because there were literally hundreds of citizens who were qualified based on what they were reporting over the phone and via email.”
