The federal government has stopped all stimulus checks for the citizens of the United States of America. For this reason, several US states have come forward to provide help to the residents in this difficult time of inflation. These state governments have been providing assistance to help people combat the financial crisis left behind by the pandemic. 

The district school of Arkansas named Fort Smith has given positive news to their teachers. All eligible teachers will be receiving a stimulus check worth $1,500 as a one-time payment.
