A batch of stimulus checks worth $250 each are going out to 250,000 employees in 4 months.
This is for low income workers in the state of Oregon and not a recurring payment.
Any workers than claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit in 2020 will see this payment.
One payment will go to each household and they should be received by the end of July.
Why are there extra stimulus payments for these workers?
The goal is to help those who were impacted early on in the pandemic.
The money will make a difference in the lives of these specific people.
The payments can help with things like rent, groceries or gas.
It is expected that the total amount being sent will be worth $150 million.
