Governor Newsom: Low Income Californians Will Receive $600 Stimulus Payments This Spring
This morning, Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $7.6 billion COVID-19 relief package, which includes $600 direct payments to nearly six million low income Californians.
Those payments will also be available to workers without legal status.
If you're eligible for the money, you can expect it to arrive about two months after you file your state taxes.
The bill also includes more than $2 billion to support small businesses, which Newsom called the "backbone" of the state's economy:
"We recognize the stress, the strain, that so many small businesses have been under, and we recognize as well our responsibility to do more, and do better to help support these small businesses through this very difficult and trying time."
