“I recognized that there’s a need for additional income, especially with the pandemic resulting in record-high numbers of unemployment throughout the entire country,” said Mayor Wilson.

“This is a great opportunity to address inequalities for Black and brown people and also additional opportunities for upward mobility.”

Several private donors have contributed $2.5 million to fund the guaranteed income. Those selected will be chosen from a pre-verified group of low-income residents. 

Families who are selected will receive several hundred dollars, however those with multiple children will get more money.
