Businesses applying for their employees can ask for funding based on how many workers will be getting the payment.

Payments will range from $50,000 to $5,000,000, but can be discussed.

These funds are given to states and organizations that have proven they can be effective when sending payments out.

Unlike being deposited into individual bank accounts, workers will receive the money this way.
