Millions of Pennsylvania residents could benefit from a $ 2,000 stimulus check if a plan to use COVID funds is approved.
Governor Tom Wolf wants to use the rest of the COVID aids sent from the federal government for stimulus checks.
Eligibility for the possible stimulus check
Households must earn less than $ 80,000 to qualify for the payment.
The plan is to help families facing serious financial difficulties.
The funds must be used by the end of 2024. If not, the remaining funds should go back to the federal government.
$ 225 million is also proposed to be set aside for small businesses. This is for those who were negatively affected by the shutdown.
$ 325 million would strengthen the health care system of the state.
Finally, $ 450 million will help revitalize communities and conservation efforts.
