The federal government passed the CARES Act to give some people $1200. Thanks to a class action lawsuits brought by other organizations, some incarcerated people are eligible to receive these payments. Here’s more information about the case: https://www.lieffcabraser.com/pdf/CARES_notice_v3.pdf.
Please note: If you are or were incarcerated at some point since March 27, 2020, you may need to take action by October 15, 2020 to receive a payment.
Because Florida Justice Institute did not bring this case, Florida Justice Institute cannot answer questions about it and is simply passing along the information created by the organizations that did.
