The first round provided grants to 1,278 childcare providers in December 2021 and January 2022.

Full-time employees are queuing up to get checks at $ 1,500, while part-time employees can receive $ 750.

Payments are rolled out from today and continues until March 18th.

The scheme, first unveiled in November, is designed to help childcare providers recover from the pandemic.

Alabama DHR Commissioner Nancy Buckner said: “The nationwide shortage of staff has tested the resilience of Alabama’s child care providers.

“As they continue to persevere, these bonuses will help recruit needed reinforcements and reward current employees for their dedicated service to children and families in Alabama.”

Up to eight quarterly bonuses can be given before September 23rd.

Childcare providers must meet specific qualifications to apply for a grant.

Providers must be in operation and must continue to operate for a minimum of one year after receiving the bonus funds.

Providers must also have a good reputation with the Alabama DHR.

Applications and further information can be accessed at DHR website.

Alabama is not the only state that offers Americans an economic boost.

Indiana residents must receive one $ 125 tax refund but only after they have filed their 2021 tax return.

State law requires officials to reimburse taxpayers whose reserves, excluding education, make up more than 12.5 percent of the general funding pool.

The state has about $ 4 billion in reserves, equivalent to 23 percent of its general fund.

CASH BOOST

Taxpayers will see payments arrive via direct deposit or paper check.

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said, “Despite a pandemic, Indiana exceeded all expectations and closed the state’s fiscal year with an unprecedented amount in reserves.”

“We have an obligation to put this money back in the hands of taxpayers instead of living it in (government) hands.”

And the state will work with about 910,000 low-income Americans who pay taxes but do not file returns.

The last time Indiana residents received an automatic tax refund was in 2013.

In the meantime Florida Governor Ron DeSantis included provisions for an additional $ 1,000 payment to teachers in this year’s state budget.

Last year, pre-K through 12th grade teachers cashed in a $ 1,000 payment.

That Republicans said the program provided support to about 175,000 teachers and 3,600 principals by 2021.

DeSantis’ education proposal also includes a $ 600 million provision that will raise minimum teacher salaries in Florida.
