Recipients of the Chelsea Eats program in Chelsea, Massachusetts, only need to wait 18 more days before they receive their second payment from the program, worth up to $400.

A total of 738 households will receive payments ranging from $200 to $400 from the program on April 15. It will help Massachusetts residents buy food and pay their utility bills. The city distributed debit cards to recipients in early March, which is how recipients will receive this payment, a Chelsea city spokesperson told the Washington Examiner.

The amount people will receive from this payment will depend on the recipient’s household size. A household of one will receive a payment of $200, a household of two will get $300, and any household with three or more people will receive a payment of $400.

The April payment will mark the second of three payments this program will provide to recipients via their debit cards. The first payment was issued earlier this month on March 15, and the last one is planned for May.

To be selected for this program, applicants had to have been residents of Chelsea and have had a household income of 30% less than the area median. For a household of one, that would be $29,450, and for a household of two, it would be $33,650. The income limit increases slightly for each additional person in a household.

This three-month program will issue payments to recipients on the 15th of each month. After the third payment in May, there are no plans to continue the program, a spokesperson told the Washington Examiner.
