Minnesota Stimulus Check 2022
Most economists agree that a recession has officially begun after the Commerce Department reported a second consecutive quarter of economic contraction last week. Some economists and the administration of President Joe Biden have been resisting this notion, instead waiting for the National Bureau of Economic Research to declare whether or not the United States is in recession.
Both food and gas prices, as well as housing costs, have skyrocketed due to rising inflation, putting a strain on many Americans. While federal officials argue about how to fix the economy, some state governors are stepping in and distributing stimulus checks to their constituents. Paychecks are being dispersed this month in the states of Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and New Mexico. Here is what reports had to say about who is eligible in Minnesota:
“Frontline workers in Minnesota are eligible for a one-time payment of $750. Check began going out late last month but applications were due by July 22.”

“The law permitted citizens who served in a front-line capacity during the Covid-19 outbreak to request additional compensation. Payments will be distributed equally from the $500 million fund allocated for the frontline staff either in September or October.”
