As stimulus checks end from the federal government, many states are sending them, or trying to. Other places have UBI payments or a tax rebate.
Many of these “stimulus” payments aren’t stimulus payments, but tax rebates.
Any extra money is welcomed by qualifying Americans as inflation makes purchasing gas and groceries more difficult.
Here are various states giving stimulus checks or tax rebates

Pennsylvania governor is still trying to pass the $2,000 stimulus check plan
According to Newsweek, Governor Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania is still trying to pass the $2,000 stimulus check plan.
The plan is in place to help offset the cost of inflation.
Residents are struggling to purchase gas and groceries, and the payments would help certain residents.
There is an income threshold for the payments if the plan is passed.
That limit is $80,000 per household.
Around 250,000 households will qualify, costing the state about $500 million.
Wolf referenced the $15 billion dollars in funding available to pay for the plan.
The stimulus check idea was first introduced back in February but did not go anymore.
Now, Wolf is calling on lawmakers to bring it to fruition.
Some Americans are benefitting from UBI payments
Many major cities have started UBI programs, which work similarly to stimulus payments.
The difference is that stimulus payments are one time payments and UBI payments are recurring.
Here are seven cities that have programs to automatically pay residents in the program, according to Marca.
First is Atlanta, where 650 Black women are in a program that pays them $850 each month.
Chicago has a program that pays low income residents $500 per month for 12 months.
110 Houston residents receive $375 per month for one year.
In Los Angeles, 3,200 residents are seeing $1,000 per month for 12 months.
New York City is giving 100 low income mothers $1,000 per month for three years.
Another phase will add 500 more low income and pregnant mothers.
Philadelphia has a program that gives 60 residents $500 per month for one year.
Finally, in Washington D.C., new or expecting mothers could qualify for $900 per month for one year.
