And families with three or more children receive $2,000 worth of monthly payments.

You must be at least 18 years old, identify as Black, African American or African and live in Multnomah County to apply.

In addition, only one application can be submitted per household.

The number of applicants will be reduced to 1,000 between September and October.

Those who are selected must write two essays as part of the application process.

A final review of applications takes place in November before payments are sent in December.

Brown Hope founder Cameron Whitten told the Portland Business Journal, “I think people are really excited to be part of a program as transformative as Black Resilience.

“I know people can really see the impact this type of program is going to have.

“We’re really excited about the opportunity and our first year to show how powerful basic income is.”

The income thresholds were set specifically in response to annual childcare costs, which are approximately $10,000 per year.

For a household of one or two adults, it’s $47,565.

The income limit for a single parent household or a household of three is $67,155.

And it’s $74,745 for a household of four or more people.

One program provides 150 people in Alexandria, Virginia with monthly payments of $500 for two years.

Low-income residents in Des Moines, Iowa, could get $500 a month for two years under a new pilot program.

Around 110 people are eligible for the new income program.

Payments could be sent out in February 2023, according to the Mid Iowa Health Foundation.

At least 650 black women in Atlanta, Georgia will receive $850 monthly payments over the next two years through the Georgia Resilience and Opportunity Fund.

The income scheme will continue until the end of September.
