The one-off relief payments are back - Brand new $500 checks 

are being issued to thousands of Americans. You just have to apply

There are thousands of Americans who are struggling 

and who can apply for a $500 direct payment.

The second round of Chicago Resiliency 2.0 program was officially 

launched on Thursday by Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot.

According to city officials, the payment will go to up to 

7,000 domestic workers and 10,000 undocumented residents.

A portion of the funds will go towards helping those 

Who missed out on federal stimulus checks due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Care workers are the backbone of our economy - 

they enable the rest of our economy to function." said Mayor Lightfoot.

Having grown up as a domestic worker's daughter, 

I understand the struggles female domestic workers face on 

a daily basis to support other families while keeping their own afloat.
