Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan:
Here is some important information on how to help make sure people in Michigan - including those who are experiencing housing instability and homelessness get their federal stimulus checks. Since there is a lot of confusing information out there and a lot of misperseptions that people have about the stimulus, Poverty Solutions put together a resource with all of the information and answers to questions in one place.
The guide with easy to access links is below, but the most important things to know are:
- People who are homeless and unaccompanied youth over 18 are eligible for this money.
- If someone has not filed taxes last year or this year they will not receive their stimulus check UNLESS then do the steps below. - Everyone who has a valid social security number is eligible, you do not need to have earned any income or paid any taxes in the past to receive the stimulus check. - This money does not "count against" any other benefit programs. Receiving the stimulus check will not make you lose your SNAP, Medicaide or other income depended benefits.
