Cities or States That Could Be Eligible for Stimulus Money

As lawmakers focus their efforts on political wrangling, chances for a fourth stimulus check diminish.

Financial aid is still accessible to certain Americans. They are able to do so because they reside in states and towns that provide some type of universal basic income (UBI).

UBI aims to alleviate poverty and provide economic stability for Americans by providing them with the income they require to meet basic necessities.

Each of the cities and states listed below is doing everything it can to help residents escape poverty and provide their families with the necessities of life, as published by the AZ Central site.
