Thousands are expecting $500 stimulus checks this week, is one yours?

A new round of stimulus checks is being sent to thousands of eligible Americans, this time to residents in St. Louis.

These payments are part of the city’s direct cash program and are worth $500 each.

Residents that suffered negatively due to the pandemic and are in need of financial assistance could be eligible.

Negative impacts include losing your job, losing hours, funeral costs, and treatment costs for the virus.
