If your income is under $30,000, you will see the maximum payment of $500.
About 270,000 households are estimated to be eligible for the payment.
If you make between $30,000 and $40,000, you will see $400.
Making between $40,000 and $50,000 will bring in a $300 check.
The governor just needs to sign the bill in order for it to become law.
After that, the law will go into effect in January 2023.
