Direct payments to low-income people in three states

Direct payments to low-income people in three states

Up to $1,050 in direct payments issued in California, Illinois, Virginia

Direct payments of up to $1,050 are issued in California, Illinois, and Virginia under four different programs. Some of these payments are published either once or monthly.

Over the past few years, cities and states in the United States have provided Americans with financial assistance to combat rising inflation. Most of this financial assistance is issued through stimulus checks, tax rebates, budget surpluses, or Universal Basic Income (UBI) programs. These payments are made either once or monthly. On the other hand, UBI programs only issue payments for a period of time, Weiss reported.

Middle-class tax refund

According to Macht, California has issued tax deductions ranging from $200 to $1,050 since October 2022. The number of tax deductions to be administered depends on the adjusted gross income of residents. Tax rebates are one-time but are issued in installments to about 23 million residents. Residents can get tax benefits either through direct deposit or debit cards. By the end of January, all residents are expected to have already received the tax cuts.

Coachella Immigrant Family Recovery Program

Weiss also mentioned that 140 families from Coachella, California, can also expect to receive $400 per month. These payments are owed to UBI's program called the Coachella Immigrant Families Recovery Program. The City of Coachella and the nonprofit Mission Asset Fund will issue these payments for 24 months. Applications for the program ended in November 2022. However, recipients were notified via email of their approval only on December 27, 2022. Approved recipients can look forward to receiving payments in January. Payments will also be obtained through either direct bank deposits or prepaid debit cards.

Evanston, ILLINOIS UBI Program

According to Brown, 150 recipients have been selected to receive monthly payments of $500. In January this year, the second batch of payments was released, with the first batch due in November 2022. The payments are said to have been issued through a prepaid debit card. Applicants must live in Evanston, Illinois, and earn a household income at or below 250% of the federal poverty line to be eligible. Applicants must also be 18-24, 62 years or older, or undocumented community members.

The program arose

In Alexandria, Virginia, the first tranche of payments from the UBI ARISE program is expected to be released in February. The Alexandria Recurring Income for Success and Equity Program is a pilot study offering $500 for 24 months. Alexandria partners with MoCaFi, a financial distribution partner, to issue payments through a debit card-like card. Recipients do not need to have a bank account to be able to receive these payments, Weiss reported.
