With the fourth stimulus check in the air and many of the aid coming to an end, the different state governments in the country have chosen to create their own aid that will go directly to their citizens in order to alleviate the crisis at the end of the 2021.
Several states in the United States have distributed aid to areas where the health emergency has hit the worst, while many others are waiting to approve some payments or economic benefits in these months.
