The annual inflation rate in the United States is at historical levels.

According to the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, the year-over-year rate was 9.1% in June, the highest rate since December 1981.

Due to this, several states of the American Union have chosen to pass legislation to grant their own stimulus checks, also known as stimulus checks in English, to their residents, in such a way as to provide them with help to face the increase in prices of groceries and services.

What states give or will give stimulus checks to residents? How much are the payments?
