The city of Cambridge has recently unveiled an innovative initiative, a Guaranteed Income Program, designed to financially assist those who qualify. Participants of the program can expect to receive recurring payments of $500 over an 18-month period. The aim of this program is to provide a safety net for families with low income, especially those with children, residing within the city limits of Cambridge. To be eligible, applicants’ income must be at or below 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Line.
It’s important to note that the income cap varies depending on the household size, so applicants should verify their income limits based on the number of individuals in their home. To qualify for the $500 monthly payment, applicants must be at least 18 years old and have a child who is 21 years old or younger. Interestingly, the City of Cambridge has stated that they will accept “all applicants who meet the eligibility requirements.”

Moreover, the child must also reside in the same household to meet the eligibility criteria for this financial aid. Interested parties should act swiftly as the application deadline is approaching on July 31, 2023. Cambridge city officials have emphasized that only one application can be submitted per household. The name of this groundbreaking Guaranteed Income initiative is ‘Rise Up Cambridge.’ The program boasts an impressive budget of $22 million.
Upon submitting your application for the $500 monthly aid, you will receive a confirmation via email or text message, containing a link enabling you to monitor the progress of your application.
