GitHub Actions access to Checks API

I know it’s possible to access the Checks API through a GitHub App (as defined here: Getting started with the Checks API - GitHub Docs), just confirming this is also available for GitHub Actions?

You may want to check out this handy action that makes it easy to use any part of the REST API: GitHub - actions/github-script: Write workflows scripting the GitHub API in JavaScript

Yes, per:
https://docs.github.com/en/actions/using-jobs/assigning-permissions-to-jobs#overview
checks is one of the allowed scopes
