Many Americans can soon expect a stimulus payment for the month of May if they live in certain areas and meet the criteria for the payment.
Checks are worth as much as $1,200.
Stimulus and tax rebate payments are typically a one time payment, where UBI payments are recurring.
Here are 5 places giving out stimulus, tax rebate, or UBI payments to residents
First is Chicago, Illinois, where residents can expect funding for gas and transportation if they qualify.
The city is giving out gas cards worth $100 and transit cards worth $50.
Residents that qualify can apply each month.
There are 50,000 gas cards and 100,000 transit cards.
75,000 of the transit cards are being given out to the most struggling neighborhoods.
The remaining 25,000 are going out to the rest of the city.
Gas cards can be used at most gas stations in the city of Chicago.
On order to qualify you must be 18+, live in Chicago, have a valid city sticker on your vehicle and a household income at or below 100% of the median income.
