It takes a mere two weeks for the income guarantee program to start paying selected Palm Springs California residents $800 per month as Stimulus Check. In March, 30 beneficiaries were chosen for the scheme, which is managed by non-profits DAP Health and Queer Works. On May 15, the 18-month pay schedule will start. As stated by Queer Works, the users of this program will be allowed to utilize this monthly cash in any way they deem fit.
Additionally, recipients will be required to take part in an evaluation through Queer Works that will include monthly surveys. During each six-month period, the program’s data will be given access, and the final analysis is anticipated in the winter of 2024.
Applicants are required to earn nothing above $16,600, or 30% of Riverside County’s median income, in order to be qualified for this scheme. Furthermore, candidates had to be regarded as primary citizens of Palm Springs as well as by clients of DAP Health or Queer Works.
This program, referred to as universal basic income by Queer Works, is funded with $500,000 via Palm Springs, California. The program’s application period began on 15th March and ended on 25th March. On 30 March, the program’s chosen grantees received notice that they had been chosen.
Stimulus Checks’ New Scheme
The scheme is one of many guaranteed income programs operating in California. On 1 June, a program in El Monte that would pay 125 candidates $500 per month is anticipated to start. On 17th May, beneficiaries of the Pathway to Income Equity trial project for Sonoma County will get their second payment of $500 each month.
