OVER the weekend, an additional 20,000 Americans will receive $300 in direct payments.
The new incentive checks will go to low-income households in Santa Ana, California.
This is part of the Revive Santa Ana Resident Stimulus Program, where a total of $6 million in payments will be sent.
Those who qualify will get $300 prepaid Visa debit cards.
Officials will deliver the cards door-to-door beginning Dec. 4, according to The Orange County Register.
To qualify for aid, rental unit poverty rates must be above the Santa Ana median of 42%.
Santa Ana Mayor Vicente Sarmiento has asked beneficiaries to use the card locally to help entrepreneurs in the area.
Laura Wood, who rents in the city, told ABC7, “I think it (the map) will be really helpful. People have struggled with the gentrification in the area and just inflation, and things have been very expensive.”
The city’s move comes as the state continues to send incentive payments. Under California’s Golden State Stimulus II, payments are worth up to $1,100.
They will be sent to state residents earning less than $75,000 a year and to those who filed taxes before October 15, 2020.
The last batch of checks was sent to zip codes with the last three digits ranging from 585-719.
That area will continue to receive payments until December 17.
The remaining schedule for paper check mailings is as follows:
- 720-927: 13/12/2021 to 31/12/2021
- 928-999: 27/12/2021 to 1/11/2022
By the end of the year, about 9 million residents will receive checks.
Also, Californians could receive another round of stimulus in 2022 thanks to $31 billion in excess funds.
