Frontline Worker Program Draws More Than 1 Million Applicants

Since it was enacted into law 12 weeks ago, a state program allowing Minnesotans who served on the front lines during the COVID-19 peacetime disaster to earn Frontline Worker Pay, often known as “hero checks,” has received 1,199,512 applications, according to authorities.

To express gratitude to Minnesotans who worked in frontline industries, Governor Tim Walz signed the Frontline Worker Payments into law on April 29.

The deadline for applications was Friday at 5 p.m. Before a 15-day appeals period starts for individuals whose applications have been rejected, all applications will be evaluated and validated.

The appeal window is anticipated to run from August 16 through August 31.
