Stimulus check payments up to $ 500 PER CHILD will be available until 2022
PARENTS living in Richmond, Texas could receive stimulus checks worth up to $ 500 per child in 2022.
The program is for up to three children, which means families could receive $ 1,500 in total and it’s not a one-time payment.
Families can receive assistance for three months, for a total of $ 4,500 in assistance with three children.
To be eligible, you must be a resident of Fort Bend County and the child must be under the age of 13.
Your income must also have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Arun Singh, who runs Kids R Kids daycare, says he has had to educate several of his clients about the programs and let them know it’s okay if they need help.
âPeople shouldn’t assume,â Singh said. âThere is no harm done. There is no shame in this part. Just go and ask.
