Biden’s $1.9T Coronavirus Relief Plan Includes $1,400 Stimulus Checks

President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday said his proposed $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package will include more of stimulus checks, with the latest amount of $1,400 intended to offset the relatively small $600 payments that began going out this month.

The direct payments are part of Biden’s American Rescue Plan, which aims to assist those struggling to make ends meet since the global pandemic began nearly a year ago.

The plan, which has to meet congressional approval, is packed with proposals regarding health care, education, labor and cybersecurity.

In addition to an extra $400 per week for unemployed and affected workers, $416 billion has been earmarked for a national vaccination program covering 50 million people and reopening schools in Biden’s first 100 days in office, NBC News reported.
