There are many options when it comes to stimulus cash for those who missed out when it started being sent.
One option is a payment through what’s called the Excluded New Jerseyans Fund.
This fund has specifically allocated funds set aside for those that did not get the same help as others when federal checks were sent out.
Excluded New Jerseyans Fund
Over 460,000 undocumented workers did not qualify for stimulus checks in 2020 or 2021.
A lot of them were considered essential workers and lost jobs.
How much can they get in stimulus cash?
The one time payment is worth $2,000 per person.
One household can receive a maximum of $4,000.
The deadline to apply will run until Feb. 28.
If funds are exhausted before this point then the application deadline may close sooner.
