A number of states have established their own programs for the benefit of the people who live there, with each local government determining who qualifies for a fourth stimulus check and how much they will receive.

Here’s a breakdown of how much cash residents can expect per state.

ARIZONA

In Arizona, unemployed residents can take advantage of the state’s return to work program.

Those who return to work part-time are eligible for $1,000. Those who return to full-time employees can get $2,000.

CALIFORNIA

California implemented the Golden State Stimulus for residents who must submit their 2020 tax returns by October 15.

About half of the nine million inhabitants received their checks on October 31, and the remaining checks are sent by post.

A salary of $30,000 to $75,000 per year qualified California residents to receive $600, and those with children under 18 were awarded $1,100.

CONNECTICUT

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont announced the Back to Work program for $1,000 in stimulus checks, beginning May 30, 2021, and will run through December 31, 2021.

The requirements are more involved than in other states detailing when residents filed for unemployment and how long they were unemployed.

Residents must also have found a job to be eligible for the incentive benefit.

FLORIDA

In Florida, teachers and principals will receive $1,000 in incentive money for their commitment to education during the pandemic.

GEORGIA

In Georgia, teachers and principals will receive $1,000 in incentive money for their commitment to education during the pandemic.

IDAHO

Those living in Idaho may qualify for a one-time income tax rebate.

More than half a million residents received cash – the average check was $248.

MARYLAND

Maryland residents received their statewide incentive check in August, only if the person filed their earned income tax credit.

Individuals received $300, while those with children received $500.

MICHIGAN

In Michigan, teachers are eligible for $500 in risk premiums.

NEW HAMPSHIRE

A check for $1,086 is available to families of three with no income.

NEW MEXICO

For those ineligible for aid in New Mexico in August, an application was made for another round of economic aid on Oct. 12.

The previous payment that low-income households received in August was $750.

OHIO

Ohio students may be able to receive support from scholarship money worth $46 million.

OKLAHOMA

A total of $13 million has been allocated in federal funding to pay student teachers in Oklahoma.

TENNESSEE

In Tennessee, officials passed legislation earlier in 2021 to pay a $1,000 bonus for full-time public school employees and $500 for part-time public school employees.

The aid is intended to help those who have suffered during the Covid-19 pandemic and to help them get back on their feet.

VERMONT

Meanwhile, while Vermont doesn’t issue an instant payout, the state offers to cover moving costs up to $7,500 for people moving to the state. The caveat is that the individual has to relocate due to unemployment in the hospitality and construction industry.
