SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In July 2021, the California state legislature approved a state-wide funded universal basic income program that would prioritize foster youth aging out of the system and pregnant people.
Currently, the United Way California Capital Region announced starting July 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 a $500 guaranteed income for exactly one year.
