Nearly one in three California households—over 3.5 million families (33%)—do not earn sufficient income to meet basic needs.*
We are proud to be a part of the nationwide movement offering guaranteed income programs for historically undervalued and under-invested communities. Across the country these programs have been shown to boost hardworking individuals and families towards achieving sustainable financial security and advancement along with improving overall health and wellbeing.
Families know what they need to thrive.
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.
Starting July 1, 2023, another round of guaranteed income will begin in partnership with funding from the City of Sacramento. Households selected for this next phase will receive $500 guaranteed income for exactly one year.
