BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Gov. Janet Mills announced Wednesday that the first round of $850 relief checks for Mainers will be sent on Thursday.

Mills’ office says 5,000 checks will be sent via U.S. Postal Service on Thursday and are expected to arrive in mailboxes as early as next week. An estimated 200,000 check will be sent per week after that.

They say the majority of qualifying Maine people who have already filed their 2021 Maine tax return are expected to receive their checks by mid-July.
