Thousands could receive $1,400 stimulus check through lottery – find out if you’re eligible… – The US Sun


MORE than 2,000 Americans in Iowa could receive a stimulus check worth up to $1,400 as part of a lottery scheme.
The scheme is being funded using around $3.5million from Joe Biden's American Rescue Plan.
To be eligible, low-to-moderate income Americans must’ve lived in Johnson County since March 2020 and they must show evidence that they were adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Around 2,500 people will be randomly selected for the checks.
Officials say that those eligible may have not have got federal stimulus payment, or may have suffered from home insecurity, CBS2 reports.
The Johnson County Board of Supervisors approved the scheme by three to two.
It's not known when the application process will open but Johnson County Grants Coordinator Donna Brooks said more information may be provided on March 7, according to the Iowa City Press-Citizen.
It remains unknown when funds will be sent out to successful applicants.
The White House doesn’t have any plans to introduce another round of federal stimulus checks but financial assistance continues to be provided.
Americans that are aged 50 or older in West Hollywood can apply for a program that will see people get $1,000 monthly payments.

Applications can be submitted from today and they will be accepted until March 6.
It is open to all residents regardless of citizenship status.
To be eligible, applicants must identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, or asexual (LGBTQIA).
The WHPGI is sponsoring the program to ensure that the money will provide older people who identify as LGBTQIA with stable housing and improved quality of life.
The organization found 43 percent of West Hollywood's 36,723 residents identify as LGBT.
To access payments, participants will receive a debit card that will link to a bank account that receives the monthly deposits.
Applicants do not need an existing bank account to receive the money.
And more than 10,000 residents in Alabama will get checks worth up to $1,500.
The funds are worth $12.6 million and are part of the second round of Child Care Workforce Stabilization grants from the state's Department of Human Resources (DHR).
The first round gave grants to 1,278 child care providers in December 2021 and January 2022, according to the Alabama DHR.
The second round runs from Feb. 28 through March 18.
Full-time employees can receive bonuses of $1,500, while part-time employees can receive $750.
In the absence of federal payments, Americans are being warned about potential scam emails which could fraudsters emailing unsuspecting victims claiming they’re eligible for a stimulus check.
The scammers then will pretend to offer you a condition-free payment in exchange for your personal information, such as your Social Security number, bank account, or credit card details.
The Internet Safety Group Founder, Dave Moore told KTUL ABC 8 that a general rule for spotting a scam is if it sounds too good to be true, it definitely is.
He added: "Of course, they're not trying to give you stimulus money, that's just the bait.”
