Some Americans will find themselves $500 richer thanks to stimulus funds at some point in the new year, but only if they meet certain criteria—and live in one particular United States City.

According to KSDK 5, a local NBC affiliate station, residents in St. Louis, Missouri, will be able to claim a $500 stimulus check from the city beginning Dec. 18, as they distribute funds that were a part of the American Rescue Plan. In total, the city will be delivering a total of $4,650,000 to residents, with a planned 9,300 total cash payments.

Those who wish to apply can do so via an application portal on the city’s website beginning Dec. 18 and must have proof they meet certain eligibility requirements. Those include proof of residency in the city of St. Louis, income eligibility requirements that state they earn at or under 80% of the area median income, and proof they suffered a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Loss of income can include fewer hours, complete job loss, funeral expenses or treatment costs for someone who was ill.

Those who wish to meet the income eligibility requirements must have income at or below $47,550 for a one-person household, all the way up to $89,650 for a household of eight people.

Residents in St. Louis aren’t the only ones receiving some extra money, either in the new year or before 2021 comes to an end. Residents in California are still receiving payments up to $1,100 as part of the Golden State Stimulus checks, while residents in Illinois are waiting to see if they will be given $200 stimulus checks which have been proposed by state government officials.

In addition, parents receiving the expanded Child Tax Credits are going to see the final payment of six deposited in their accounts on Dec. 15, and those who were eligible for the credit but did not receive earlier payments because they didn’t file a tax return, will be getting between $1,500-$1,800 in a lump sum payment per child.
