The next payment of $1,000 in a guaranteed income program in Los Angeles is scheduled to go out in 11 days.
The program, called Breathe, pays $1,000 monthly to 1,000 participants and plans to make the payments for about three years. Payments are made on the 15th of each month, the Los Angeles County agency of Strength Based Community Change told the Washington examiner.
The 1,000 recipients are all former LA County Department of Children and Family Services foster children between the ages of 21 and 23. The program is designed to help recipients create financial security.
Recipients receive the monthly payments through issued debit cards, eliminating the need for a bank.
Applications for Breathe opened on March 31, 2022 and closed on April 13, 2022. First payments were made in June 2022 and payments will cease in August 2025.
Breathe is a pilot program that hopes “to usher in something bigger in the future that will serve more people in Los Angeles County,” according to the program’s website.
An expansion to the program will add 200 additional recipients, including former DCFS foster children, who will receive $1,000 monthly for two years. Applications for the extension are open on June 20 and closed on Monday.
Additional information about this program is available online.
