Live in Montgomery County? Here's how you're one step closer to getting 2nd stimulus check

SPRING, Texas (KTRK) -- Montgomery County residents are one step closer to possibly getting a second stimulus payment.

The Montgomery County Commissioners Court has authorized the county attorney's office to move forward with a plan that will take unused money given to the county by the federal government and give it directly to residents.

Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack's proposal to return $65 million back to residents passed, subject to guidance from the U.S. Treasury, during a special commissioners court session on Monday.

The plan, if approved, will send qualified homesteaded property owners throughout the county, who complete an application, a $500 stimulus check.

"What I'd like to do is try to find a way to get that money back in the hand of the taxpayer, because they're the ones that have really been harmed the most during COVID-19," Noack explained in April.
