New stimulus funds will be available in Maine as early as June, benefiting over 800,000 Americans.
Governor Janet Mills’ $1.2 billion supplemental budget was signed into law on April 20.
“What this budget demonstrates once again is that through hard work and good faith discussion, Democrats, Republicans, and independents can come together to achieve what is right for Maine residents,” Mills said after the bill passed.
“And that we can do so without the animosity and ugly partisanship that has before divided Augusta.”
In Maine, who will be eligible for stimulus cheques in June?
According to estimates, around 850,000 Maine citizens will get cheques, with individual taxpayers earning up to $100,000 being eligible.
If you’re the head of household, the sum rises to $150,000, or $200,000 if you’re filing jointly.
What other advantages do you have?
Property tax reduction has also been granted to senior citizens and low-income homeowners and tenants.
Furthermore, $20 million will be set aside to provide up to two years of free community college to kids who are qualified and will graduate between 2020 and 2023.
There’s also a $3 million litigation fund to support Maine’s lobster sector, which is vital as the state battles the federal government over endangered species restrictions.
What was lacking, and what many had anticipated seeing, was additional financing for legal services for Maine’s poorest citizens.
