Families in Florida are eligible for a one-time inflation payment of $450 per child

Individual states are opening their coffers as the enhanced federal child tax credit 

Returns to its original maximum of $2,000 per child for 2022 and the last of the economic 

impact payments are paid out to eligible recipients. Some states have implemented child tax credit

And deduction programs, while others have reduced property taxes and offered gas rebates. 

By sending one-time stimulus checks to residents who need them most, many states have 

already put money back into consumers' wallets. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has announced

That his administration will send one-time stimulus checks of $450 to foster and 

Adoptive families in the state to help reduce the impact of still-soaring inflation. Over 59,000 Florida families 

Are expected to benefit from the program. In letters sent to residents who will receive checks, 

Newsweek reports, "This one-time payment can be used for anything from diapers to fuel."

As Insider notes, there is no registration required. Funding for the program will come

from Florida's $1 billion American Rescue Plan Act. Insider spoke to Laura Walthall, spokesperson for

The Florida Department of Children and Families, who said that the one-time 

Payment benefits families facing inflation and preparing to send their children back to school.

In addition to the stimulus payment, first lady Casey DeSantis has launched a larger initiative,

Hope Florida - A Pathway to Prosperity, administered by the Florida Department of Children and Families.

Through community collaboration, the program supports and empowers foster and adoptive families in the state.
