Economic Impact Payment

As of April 15, around 80 million Americans received their COVID-19 stimulus payment via direct deposit. The IRS has indicated that Americans with direct deposit information on file who have not yet received their stimulus payment should receive a direct deposit over the next two weeks.

Additionally, the IRS has a tool that allows you to track the status of your stimulus payment and/or update your bank account information. It can be found here. This tool will provide you confirmation that your payment has been direct deposited.  The payment will be deposited to the account utilized on your most recent tax return (2018/2019) or to the updated account.

For families who are experiencing permanent or temporary job loss:

  • First, file for unemployment insurance through the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. That can be accessed here.
  • The unemployment insurance process can be overwhelming and feel hard to navigate. Frequently asked questions about payment, benefits, claims, and vouchers can be viewed here. A digital tutorial can be found here.

COVID-19 Assistance Program - Community Foundation of Wabash County
The Community Foundation of Wabash County has developed the COVID-19 Assistance Program to provide short-term financial assistance to people who are out of work and are in need of support and essential employees that continue to work and are in need of childcare for their family.

The expenses covered by these grants may include:

  • Rent and Utility payments
  • Medical expenses
  • Childcare expenses for children aged 0-12 for people that continue to work as an essential employee

Wabash County citizens who meet the above criteria can also request applications for assistance by contacting REACH in North Manchester, Wabash Area Ministerial Association (WAMA), or their respective Wabash County township trustee.

The Community Foundation is also asking for donations to help support this assistance program. Those who are able and interested in donating may do so on the Community Foundation website or by mailing a check to the Community Foundation of Wabash County with the "Community Foundation COVID-19 Assistance Program" included in the memo line.
