Missouri is soon going to send out stimulus checks of almost $500 to a few low-income families. After this gets approved, St. Louis residents are likely to receive relief payments. The government has proposed this program to its zonal committee but there are a few steps left for it to become legal. The administration of Tishaura O. Jones, Mayor has shared some details regarding stimulus check plans that might be sent on a monthly basis. This plan will be of high value to many low-income families in the state and will be welcomed heartily.
Missouri Stimulus Check Monthly Basis
Mayor Jones revealed that their plan for giving stimulus checks to low-income households is worth $5 million. This fund is received directly from the stimulus money of the federal pandemic allotment. They have reached the decision to give this relief money to almost 440 families with low income over the next 18 months. Each household is likely to receive about a $500 stimulus payment.
In addition, parents and guardians of low-income households whose children go to public schools are eligible to get monthly checks. This initiative has been taken mainly to provide assistance during the financial crisis because of inflation and COVID-19 damage.
More Details About Missouri Stimulus Money
This monetary assistance program is called Guaranteed Basic Income and will be funded by Alderman Shameem Clark Hubbard. This program has been announced last week after months of discussion and will soon reach the needy.
Many opposed the program but ultimately the bill was passed and the checks will be delivered soon. Missouri set up this program within 6 months and functions as a one-time payment of $500. This has been a huge success for St. Louis residents as well as the government of Mayor Jones.
