THOUSANDS of Americans are still owed direct payments – and they could get some this month.
The payment stimulus going to low-income households in Santa Ana, California.
This is part of Reviving the Santa Ana Residency Stimulus Program, a total of $6 million in payments will be sent.
Eligible people will receive a $300 prepaid Visa debit card.
Santa Ana Mayor Vicente Sarmiento asked beneficiaries to use the card locally to help business owners in the area.
Officials began handing out the cards on December 4.
About 2,700 payments have been distributed to eligible residents so far – meaning another 17,300 are still owed payments, a city official told The Sun.
“We have a few days until the end of December to complete it,” the official said.
“We plan to either stream 20,000 full cards in person or notify eligible residents by mail to pick them up,” he added.
However, he is unable to determine which regions have received and are still waiting for their cards.
