STIMULUS PAYMENT: ECONOMIC IMPACT SURVEY

In March, the U.S. Congress passed, and the President signed, the CARES Act, legislation designed to provide economic help for Americans affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the law, most households would receive an “Economic Impact Payment” (a “stimulus check”) of $1,200 per adult and $500 per child under 17 years old, or up to $3,400 for a family of four.

It’s now September -- have you received your payment? Please take a moment to share your experience with us so that we can better serve the needs of the community.
