Peoples Prosperity Guaranteed Income
The City of Saint Paul launched the Peoples' Prosperity Guaranteed Income Pilot in 2020. This innovative program provided 150 Saint Paul families with $500 per month in guaranteed income for 18 months.
The pilot's goal was simple: get cash to families with no strings attached so they can buy things they need, like food, housing and other essentials.
"The Peoples' Prosperity Pilot was a life raft and felt like a brighter pathway opened up for my kids and a little weight - a big weight, actually - just kind of lifted."
