A set of West Hollywood residents will get a new state-funded stimulus check. A trial program for guaranteed income will soon be accepting applications for people to get more than a year of free money.
This campaign will target a specific population of California adults.
Only 25 persons will be chosen randomly from the application process to earn $1,000 each month for 17 months – a total of $17,000 in free money with no strings attached.
Stimulus Check For LGBTQIA Community
Community people interested in applying for the West Hollywood Pilot for Guaranteed Income must live in West Hollywood, be 50 or older, identify as LGBTQIA, and have an annual income of $41,400 or less. Your yearly family income should be less than or equal to the low income for the Long Beach, Glendale, and Los Angeles metropolitan areas.
The application period will begin on February 25, 2022, and end on March 6, 2022. From April 2022 through September 2023, 25 suitable participants will be chosen at random from a pool of eligible candidates to receive unconditional monthly $1000 stimulus checks.
The West Hollywood City Council adopted an item in January 2021 to join the Mayors for Guaranteed Income (MGI) network and authorized staff to design a guaranteed income pilot program for West Hollywood, including identifying research, financing, community implementation, and evaluation partners.
The City of West Hollywood wishes to put to the test the developing promise of guaranteed income to assist avoid homelessness, support community members as they age in place, and alleviate the pressures of poverty and financial instability. On April 15, 2022, the first monthly cash payment will be made.
You will be given a debit card, which will be linked to a bank account that will receive monthly deposits. To get your stimulus check money, you do not need to have an existing bank account.
