Many American families are struggling with economic inflation due to the pandemic. Costs for drugs, groceries and other necessities are constantly rising and families are not earning enough to cover these expenses. This makes stimulus checks and other related efforts essential for the community.
Fortunately, there are eight ongoing programs that can provide financial assistance to eligible Americans.
