In late February, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan signed The RELIEF Act of 2021, legislation which will provide up to $1 billion for stimulus payments, unemployment insurance, and grants and loans to individuals and small businesses in Maryland.
The RELIEF Act will deliver the following in an effort to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic:
Citizens qualifying for stimulus payments must be Maryland residents or permanent residents, and meet the criteria below.
Marylanders may check on their eligibility and the status of payments they are scheduled to receive through the contact information below.
Note that the State of Maryland has identified close to 6,000 eligible stimulus recipients whose address is unknown. CBM suggests that anyone who believes their current address may not be on file reach out to the State to verify their information.
Finally, any individual or family eligible to benefit from The RELIEF Act of 2021 and who has already filed their 2020 Maryland State tax return may file an amended return to receive benefits.
For more information about The RELIEF Act of 2021, contact CBM Principal Tom Bailey using our online contact form.
