It is not too late to receive your economic impact stimulus payment that is available to all Americans as part of The CARES Act. The Act was passed in March 2020 to provide economic assistance for Americans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These payments started going out in April and aim to give immediate relief to families and individuals during this timeThose who rely on public assistance such as food, financial and medical support should make sure they receive the additional relief that is available to them.

You’re likely to be eligible for an economic impact payment if you:

How much money can I receive?
