There is a strong likelihood that no further stimulus checks will be issued. The child tax credit program is also unlikely to be renewed by Congress, which is poor news for parents hoping to get more money this year. However, certain moms may be qualified for a coronavirus stimulus screening. However, this stimulus check is only available to a select group of mothers in New York City, reports Entrepreneur.
Criteria For Applicant
Last year, the program served 100 families, and this year, it will serve 500 additional mothers. For the first 18 months, mothers who are qualified for the program will get $1,000, and for the next 18 months, they will receive $500.
The stimulus money will be given to women in the form of cash, with no restrictions on how they can use it.
In terms of eligibility, any pregnant woman who lives in a certain neighborhood is eligible to receive funds under the program. In addition, the family’s household income must be under $52,000.
This coronavirus stimulus check for mothers is part of The Bridge Project, a guaranteed income program for mothers in low-income areas in New York City. The authorities hope to address the issue of inequality by distributing unconditional cash through The Bridge Project.
The program’s website states that “giving them constant, unconditional, and quick cash is sometimes all it takes to bring them out of poverty.”
Visit the Bridge Project website for additional information on the program, including eligibility criteria and how to apply.
The Bridge Project
The Bridge Project in New York City’s first income-guaranteed program. The Monarch Organization, a private, non-profit family foundation, started it in June 2021. The program’s main goal is to assist low-income moms in the city during their children’s first 1,000 days of life.
During the program’s first phase, 100 low-income women in Inwood/Washington Heights and Harlem were given $500 or $1,000 each month. For the next three years, 50 moms will get payments every two weeks totaling $500 per month, while another 50 will receive $1,000 every month. In early 2022, the next phase will begin with 500 mothers.
To reach eligible families, project officials are enlisting the aid of community partners. The Bridge Project is also collaborating with the University of Pennsylvania’s CGIR (Center for Guaranteed Income Research).
According to research conducted by the Bridge Project, up to 60% of NYC newborns and young children under the age of three are living in poverty.
