Stimulus checks and tax rebates were a lifesaver for many suffering from job loss and inflation during the pandemic. Many states will be sending their own through the rest of autumn before 2023.
There are currently around 17 states sending payments of some sort to qualifying residents. A lot of these payments are in the form of tax rebates being paid for by a tax revenue surplus.
Each state has different criteria and amounts for what they plan to give residents. A lot of states have already sent money to residents, or are continuing to through the fall. Other states have just started.
In addition to state payments, the IRS is still finishing up sending stimulus checks to late filers.

Some states issued new laws to be able to send payments
