Bonus $2,000 stimulus check offered in direct payments from $2.2 billion pot


MILLIONS of Pennsylvania residents could get closer to $2,000 direct payments thanks to Gov. Tom Wolf.

In February, Pennsylvania’s governor proposed a $1.7 billion plan to help the state recover from the pandemic through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).


Governor Tom Wolf has offered direct stimulus payments of up to $2,000

Part of his proposal includes direct payments of up to $2,000 to eligible Pennsylvania residents.

The funds would come from the state’s $2.2 billion surplus from unspent coronavirus relief funds.

Mr. Wolf said the plan would use $500 million of that excess for the one-time payment.

“While Pennsylvanians are still battered and trying to recover from the pandemic, we cannot sit on billions of dollars in federal aid that could cure Pennsylvania,” Wolf said in a statement.

“It is wrong to withhold this money to help people. It is high time to act, he added.

Lawmakers must act quickly because if the funds are not used by December 31, 2024, they will be returned to the federal government.

Although the bill did not pass, Governor Wolf won the support of Rep. Patty Kim in Harrisburg, acknowledging that with inflation raging, Americans might need more help.

The governor said increased household incomes will help workers and families still battling the pandemic.

If the bill passes, households earning $80,000 or less would be eligible for checks.

Pennsylvanians could spend the stimulus checks on whatever is needed.

Additionally, Governor Wolf proposed that $225 million be allocated to help small businesses impacted by the pandemic.

While an additional $325 million would be added to the state’s healthcare system, with an additional $450 million given to conservation and preservation efforts.
