Known as Golden State Stimulus II (GSS II), this stimulus scheme has seen low-income to medium-income Californians receive much-needed financial aid over the second half of 2021 and now in the first two weeks of 2022.

Checks of $600 and $1,100 were sent out, with those qualifying having fallen into the $0 to $75,000 band for the 2020 tax year and having lived in the state of California for more than half of the 2020 tax year.
