States can still apply for $600 stimulus checks to give workers, see who qualifies for the $700 million dollar program

$600 stimulus checks are available to millions of Americans from the Farm and Food Worker Relief Grant Program worth $700 million dollars.

The funding is given directly to the state agencies, Tribal entities, and non-profit programs that will then disburse the money to farm workers and meatpacking workers.

Organizations and state agencies that think they’re eligible have until Feb. 8, 2022 to apply.
