More than 2 million Californians have fallen into a “stimulus gap” where they are entitled to money from federal COVID-19 relief programs but have not yet received them. And they may be in danger of never collecting the money, according to a new report from the California Policy Lab.
Since April 2020, three payments totaling up to $ 3,200 per have been sent. Person to qualified Americans. Of the 2.2 million Californians in the so-called stimulus gap, 1.4 million may have missed all three payment rounds. Those who filed their state taxes in 2018, but not 2019, are estimated to be 424,000 Californians, at risk of not receiving their second and third payments. And with the latest help package, an estimated 360,000 addicts may also be missing out.
