ECONOMIC IMPACT PAYMENTS
The IRS is issuing Economic Impact Payments to every eligible American. We need your help to reach individuals who do not normally file because they do not have enough income that requires them to file. This includes the homeless, unbanked, certain seniors, and some limited English-proficient individuals who will need to provide information to the IRS to get their Economic Impact Payment. If possible, those individuals can use the IRS free online tool to sign up to get an Economic Impact Payment. Click HERE
Critical infrastructure workers responding to Louisiana's COVID-19 public health emergency may qualify for a one-time rebate of $250. You may qualify if you earn less than $50,000 and were employed in one of the critical infrastructure positions on or after March 11, 2020. CLICK HERE
