$1,000 in Direct Payments

Low-income household families in the country are in need of financial assistance amidst the increasing prices and inflation rate. Different levels of government are trying their best to ensure that they can help American families meet their daily needs.

In a published article in The Washington Examiner, Los Angeles County issued an amount of $1,000 in direct payments to $1,000 participants last Thursday, June 15, 2023, to $1,000 participants. This is a monthly payment that will end until August 2025.

The aim of the “BREATHE” program is to make sure that recipients feel that they are financially secure every month and they can buy their basic commodities.
