Several Americans are hoping for another stimulus check from the federal government. However, These 5 seat coast states are continuing to deliver financial relief for their residents.
Stimulus Checks In 2023
As the economy has suffered from a pandemic, and skyrocketing inflation, the federal government has stepped in multiple times to aid Americans through a variety of relief initiatives, including stimulus checks, tax rebates, debt relief, and other relief programs. Unfortunately, the Stimulus that brought much of this relief has mostly come to an end, though some programs have approved payments from 2022 that will continue to roll out into 2023.
On the East Coast, several states have their versions of stimulus that will extend from 2022 into 2023 in some form or another.
