Accessing the Third Stimulus Payment for People Traditionally Excluded from the Tax System

By Diana Orozco, Jesse Fairbanks, and Ashley Burnside

The eligibility requirements for these most recent Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) have changed from last year’s checks. Therefore, service providers and others working in the community are considering best practices to ensure that people traditionally excluded from the tax system receive the third payment and any previous payments they may qualify for. We compiled these frequently asked questions (FAQs) to support those who work with unhoused, unbanked, and/or immigrant communities, as well as the people directly impacted, in understanding how to access their stimulus payment. Resources and questions for incarcerated individuals can be found here.
