Providing Guaranteed Income to help hardworking families achieve sustainable financial security and advancement
We are proud to be a part of the nationwide movement offering guaranteed income programs for historically undervalued and under-invested communities. The first of its kind in the Capital Region, our Guaranteed Income program promotes economic security, helps residents remain housed and pays for necessities like food and childcare.
Since June 1, 2021, 100 families in Sacramento County have been receiving $300 of unconditional income every month. This cohort concluded May 2023.
In 2023, the second cohort was launched, in partnership with funding from the City of Sacramento, the UWCCR Guaranteed Income Program 2.0 was launched, serving 80 City of Sacramento households. Payments of $500/month for 12 months began on July 1, 2023.
