Monthly payment program : Residents who qualify will receive $500 per month through a NEW monthly payment program.
An income guarantee pilot program has been approved in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
According to the legislation, the program will require $4 million in funding, despite passing by an 8-0 vote.
Half of that amount will come from the council and the other $2million will come from the Greater Washington Community Foundation.
Two years’ worth of $500 monthly payments will be given to 125 low-income residents.
Krystal Oriadha, who represents District Seven, called for the program to cover 200 families for 24 months in March.
Payments will still be “no strings attached,” so participants can use the money however they like.
Monthly payment program – ELIGIBILITY
It is unclear exactly how much the program will cost, but it will be “modeled” on the successful Stockton, California pilot program.
As a result, the Stockton program helped reduce volatility among participants and helped them find full-time employment.
Income must be below $46,034 to qualify.
There is no clear timeline for when applications will open and payments will begin. Prince George’s County was contacted
