Now Offering Monthly Payments of $528
The Ann Arbor City Council in Michigan has introduced an innovative guaranteed income program aimed at supporting its residents. Under this initiative, 100 individuals will receive monthly payouts of $528. Notably, there are no restrictions on how the funds can be utilized, providing recipients with flexibility in managing their finances. The city, in collaboration with the University of Michigan, is spearheading the program’s implementation.
Mayor Christopher Taylor emphasized the effectiveness of guaranteed income programs in addressing generational poverty, stating that such initiatives have gained momentum nationwide. Through the partnership with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor aims to gain valuable insights into the program’s impact and, more importantly, extend assistance to those in need within the community.
To qualify for the monthly payments, individuals must have an income that does not exceed 300 percent of the national poverty line. Additionally, applicants need to self-identify as “low and moderate-income entrepreneurs” as defined by Ann Arbor. This includes individuals engaged in low-level entrepreneurship activities, such as gig work, home-based businesses, or services rendered to friends or neighbors, as described by the city.
Farm and Food Workers Eligible for $600 Relief Payments
In recognition of the essential role played by farm and food workers during the pandemic, a program has been established to provide $600 in relief payments to eligible individuals. Working in collaboration with Pasa Sustainable Agriculture, the Delaware Agriculture Department has made these one-time relief payments available to farmworkers and meatpackers who tirelessly contributed throughout the pandemic.
To qualify for the relief payments, individuals must demonstrate that they were engaged in meatpacking or farmwork between January 27, 2020, and the expiration of the COVID-19 emergency declaration on April 11, 2023.
