Those selected were then entered into a weighted lottery and selected on February 15th.

The city listed its lottery winners online, but those chosen should have received a letter in the mail.

Eligible Massachusetts residents will receive payments ranging from $200 to $400.

The universal basic income program accepted applications in December 2022 and ended on January 6th.

One week left to apply for $500 monthly payments for “basic needs.”

Participating residents receive the money for a total of three months.


All Chelsea residents must have submitted an application by January 6 and the requirements are the same as in the first round.

You must be a Chelsea resident, submit a completed application, and have a household income of 30 percent or less of the HUD Area Median Income (AMI).

The income limits are:

  • Single household: $29,450
  • Household of two: $33,650
  • Household of three: $37,850
  • Household of four: $42,050
  • Household of five: $45,450
  • Household of six: $48,800
  • Household of seven: $52,150

Just note that the monthly benefits also depend on your family size.

For example, one-person households receive $200, two-person households receive $300, and three-person households receive $400 per month.

In addition, certain residents are given preferential treatment.

The first chosen are children under the age of 18, residents with disabilities, veterans, seniors over the age of 65, and families who are not eligible for other forms of government assistance.

Additionally, families with a head of household who identifies as a woman and families with a member who self-identifies with a marginalized/marginalized gender identity are also given priority, according to a press release from city officials.


Though an exact date has not yet been announced, city officials told The US Sun that payments are expected beginning in February.

All funds are distributed in the form of prepaid debit cards.

Just note that all cards dealt during the first round have expired and will not be reloaded.

Officials said the cards are expected to be loaded and distributed in early February, then a second and third/final distribution in early March and early April.
