(Governor announces two stimulus items)....They are both being included in Governor Gavin Newsom's Proposed budget.
First is the Golden State Stimulus. It will provide a $600 rapid cash support directly to roughly 4 million low-income Californians who, coupled with federal stimulus, could receive at least $1,200 in direct relief. The state's stimulus will also reach low-income Californians who are excluded from the federal stimulus, like undocumented households that file taxes with an individual Taxpayer Identification Number, including parents with U.S. citizen children. In the second item, the Governor is calling for immediate action to protect more Californians from eviction by extending critical eviction protections enacted in AB 3088 and ensuring that California's $2.6 billion share of federal rental assistance is distributed according to greatest need and with accountability.
