Al, it is a "Stimulus Check".
Not a "Food and Housing Check".
The only thing you are supposed to do with it is SPEND IT!
Hopefully you will spend it on food and lodging IF that is what you need.
But there are ZERO stipulations on how it is spent.
The idea is that by spending it on WHATEVER you want, there will be enough DIVERSE spending going on to "STIMULATE" the entire economy back into motion.

Slang name is stimulus check. IRS calls them Economic Impact Payments.

The CARES Act includes about $300 billion of payments to the average American person. The official name for these payments is “2020 recovery rebates” based on Section 2101 of the CARES Act. This recovery rebate comes at an important time as folks are losing jobs and feeling financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic in the US.

$2,000 set aside to have the moss and grass cleaned off my driveway, the cracks and alligatoring filled with hot liquid rubber, and a new sand/gravel/asphalt slurry seal applied over all 8600 square feet of surface. it's a really steep driveway and it needs it.

After 30 years, it's time to get it redone.

$400 set aside for Corvair project related stuff.

I consider myself extremely lucky right now to be the owner of an essential business that is busier than it ever has been. Interestingly I have been trying to hire six people for almost a month now. I have had several interested but all have said they would rather be on unemployment and collect their stimulus check to get through the next few months. They seem to be treating this as a paid vacation. Just my observation. I don’t care what you do with your stimulus check.

I remember being a bit suspect about the stimulus checks we got around 2008 / 2009. Fuel / oil prices shot through roof the following winter.

Be safe and put the money away because some part of your cost of living will probably go up after all this. Probably medical insurance and presciptions...

It’s mixed up world when the current administration is being confused for socialism. I don’t know about socialist, but certainly not fiscally conservative...even before the pandemic.

I got a debit card in the mail today. Did anyone else get a debit card? I've never heard of that. Everyone I know was either direct deposit or a Treasury check.

NOPE!
That is not anything I have heard of.
At least from the Feds.
Oregon State does give a Debit card for Unemployment payments, though.

"Bought two twelve packs and a tank of gas with it" I love that song...
Seriously, I gave it to my 28 yo son that lost both his jobs in education and is in college, still waiting for his stimulus check. Just married, he's the definition of a starving student.

That debit card thing, here in CA it's your unemployment benefits. On top of the normal state amount (for me it would be about $200/week on $1800.00/month income for 6 mo.), you get $600.00/week (!) from the feds 'till the end of July. Do the math, your looking at $3200/mo! Why work for $1800/mo? The world has gone insane, good luck hiring anyone for a couple of months.

The payback is gonna be a b***h, I'll be long dead when that bill comes due, apologize to my grandkids for me will 'ya? Maybe they can sell the Corvair, gonna be worth a fortune I tell 'ya...

I got a stimulus check. Fortunately I am retired and didn't need it. Parked it in a savings account 'cause the govt. is going to want that money back some day! I understand that there are a lot of people that really, really need that money to survive, but don't be fooled, Sam will want that money back in the future. There ain't no free lunch!

Joel, I read a report (WSJ) today that some Social Security and SSI stimulus checks/funds were going out as debit cards, so that's probably what you got.

I didn't get a stimulus check yet. But I did get a check resulting from a court case against Bass Pro. It was for a Benjamin and bit more. It paid for my new jack stands.

These checks are like when you are a kid and your wonderful uncle gives you $100 for your birthday. But years later when you are an adult, and the wonderful uncle dies, you are expected to purchase $150+ flowers for his funeral.

Just because the government says you can spend the money on anything you want does make it a prudent action. What I want is a government not strapped with debt. So, I'll put the money in the bank and the next time there is a disaster I'm sure the government will be grateful that the money is there so I can loan it (back) to them.
