Renewed. The program established last year for Sacramento, California residents is back. Who funds the payments? The city and nonprofit United Way California Capital Region. Both organizations have set off the guaranteed income program again.
When it first launched, the program paid $300 to 100 households. What is new? Qualifying low-income families will receive $500 for a year. But the beneficiary batch shrank to 80 Sacramento households.
The application process closed on April 15. Look out for the first payment on July 1.
Eligibility depends on your city, income levels, and family size. The stated requirements for earnings and family numbers were as follows:
- One adult: $28,205
- One adult, one child: $49,945
- One adult, two children: $65,880
- One adult, three children: $79,500
- Two adults: $43,201
- Two adults, two children: $64,273
- Two adults, two children: $79,500
- Household of five $93,120
- Household of six: $106,740
- Household of seven: $120,360
- Household of eight: $133,980
- For every extra person add another: $14,160
How is it that this second phase is possible? Mayor Darrell Steinberg recommended the city set aside $750,000 to support the relaunch of the program. The cash came from American Rescue Plan Act funds.
