These can be paid monthly, several times a year or just once a year.

The local government’s support comes after multiple federal aid packages amid the pandemic, including three stimulus packages for Americans.

However, those were not carried out to come back.

A fourth stimulus check is also unlikely, though petitions are calling for one in addition to paying Social Security demands.

Meanwhile, many cities and states are rolling out their own support packages to help their residents. We have rounded them up below.

California

The California Franchise Tax Board expects to make approximately nine million payments under the Golden State Stimulus II.

Yesterday, it had issued about 6.43 million stimulus checks, of which about 2.57 million have yet to be paid out.

State incentive checks are paid approximately every two weeks until every eligible Californian has received one.

The checks are worth between $600 and $1,100 and are sent to people who earn less than $75,000 a year.

Chicago

The windy city is going to offer a UBI program to low-income households.

Eligible families who earn less than $35,000 each year will receive $500 in monthly payments.

The payment will affect 5,000 Chicago families and will be paid in part with funds from the American Rescue Act, signed by President Joe Biden in March.

The participants are chosen at random, which means that you cannot register yourself.

Colombia

In September, 100 low-income dads in Columbia were given debit cards worth $500.

They will continue to receive those payments for a total of 12 months.

The one-year pilot program is called the Columbia Life Improvement Monetary Boost (CLIMB).

It aims to examine the potential impact on guaranteed income to address poverty, inequality and financial instability.

Maine

More than 500,000 people living in Maine received a one-time stimulus check worth $285 yesterday, Nov. 15.

To be eligible, you must have filed your Maine income tax return as a full-time resident for the 2020 tax year before October 31, 2021.

Individuals submitting a single must earn less than $75,000 to qualify.

If you are married, filing together, or head of household, your income must be less than $150,000 and $112,000, respectively.

New Orleans

Louisiana teens receive $350 in monthly payments as part of the state’s financial literacy program.

The state’s new initiative will affect 125 New Orleans residents, who are between the ages of 16 and 24.

The first incentive payment will be made in December.

Together with the age requirement, the money goes to people who are unemployed or out of school.
