Governor of Colorado Jared Polis has issued an executive order authorizing $168 million in stimulus funds. In the executive order, he has stated that the economic consequences of COVID-19 are massive, and they will threaten the financial stability of innumerable Coloradans and local companies.
“The contamination danger posed by COVID-19 caused the closure of several enterprises.” Employers and employees in nearly every area of the economy have taken a hit. While there are signs that our actions to flatten the curve are bearing fruit, viral spread continues to endanger the way of life and livelihoods of several Coloradans.”
Interestingly, several Coloradans have linked the one-time stimulus payout to unemployment insurance. According to Jared Polis, many Coloradans have not gotten many federal unemployment benefits since early September.
As a result, the executive order mandates that stimulus cheques be sent from the state’s unemployment insurance system to qualifying people who had previously experienced financial hardship due to Covid-19. Furthermore, the executive order requires that all stimulus cheques be distributed by December 4, 2020.

Women who live alone and act as the sole provider for a child despite not being legally separated from their spouse are also eligible to get benefits under this program.
Additionally, a single mother and other family members are responsible for the primary care of a relative’s child.
