July 21, 2022
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The state of Alaska plans to begin distributing this year’s oil-wealth fund check and a special energy relief payment to residents on Sept. 20.
The timeline was announced Friday by Gov. Mike Dunleavy and the state Department of Revenue.
The combined payout for the dividend and energy relief payment is estimated to be around $3,200 per person; a final figure is pending. Residents will receive the money as one payment, the department said.
The energy relief payment was intended by lawmakers as a one-time benefit to help residents with high energy costs.
