Two Democratic Representatives from California and Ohio have introduced new congressional legislation — the Emergency Money for the People Act — that would provide $2,000 per month to Americans impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
How It Would Work:
- Eligible Americans would receive $2,000 in cash per month guaranteed for at least six months.
- These monthly cash payments would continue until the employment to population ratio for people ages 16 and older is greater than 60%.
- The monthly cash payments would not count as income.
- The monthly cash payments would not adversely impact anyone’s ability to qualify for an income-based federal or state assistance program.
