Erica Garcetti, Los Angeles Mayor, recently informed that they have initiated the BIG LEAP program to offer stimulus checks to Basic Income people. This program will provide a $1000 payout each month to several American households.
Garcetti also stated that this initiative is intended to eradicate poverty.
The BIG LEAP program set a budget of almost $39 million and intends to help 10,000-20,000 citizens of LA. Interested people will be able to apply from 29th OCT to 7th Nov.

Before any person applies for this program they must be made aware of a few limitations present in this program and required criteria.

2: Applicants must be of 18 years of age and provide suitable verification to support the claim.
3: Applicants must have a low-income level as specified by the federal government. This means their annual must be less than $12,880.

The central government will assess every application closely before selecting the eligible people for the added stimulus check payments. This program will cover 12% of residents of district 9 in city hall.
Despite widespread rumors regarding a 4th stimulus check on the way for every American, the central government has not given any official statement about it. Nonetheless, petitions and demands are being made.
Children under 6 years of age will receive $1600 while children between 6-17 will get a check of $1500. New parents will receive stimulus payments after editing their personal information.
This Big Leap program is a significant step to help Americans overcome rampant financial issues.
