As Resident Stimulus Program Starts, Shop Local

Date: December, 05 2021 Category: City Council, REVIVE Santa Ana, Community Development, Notification

As the City of Santa Ana launches the Revive Santa Ana Resident Stimulus Program, we encourage everyone who receives a stimulus card to shop local.

In the first weekend of the program, over 100 City employees knocked on doors to hand out cards. They were joined by Mayor Vicente Sarmiento, Mayor Pro Tem David Penaloza, City Manager Kristine Ridge, and several members of the City's executive team, who all volunteered their time to help.

The City is handing out 20,000 prepaid Visa cards valued at $300 each this month. Renters in areas of Santa Ana with the highest poverty rates will receive the cards and will be contacted by the City.
