California Governor Gavin Newsom and legislature leaders announced a spending deal earlier this year aimed at helping some of those hardest hit by the pandemic. The plan includes several rounds of stimulus checks, some of which will hit bank accounts soon.
The original plan was to help low-income families. In May Newsom announced that the plan would be extended to middle-income families.
