The fund is a program of Brown Hope, a nonprofit founded by social justice activist Cameron Whitten in response to the 2020 murder of George Floyd, according to the application page.

Whitten has received a $100,000 grant from the Oregon Community Foundation and has a goal of raising $500,000 for the program before the end of the summer.

He said other foundations are interested in helping the cause.

Payments vary by income — singles receive $1,000, families with two to three children $1,500, and families with three or more children $2,000.

Other Guaranteed Income Programs

Guaranteed income programs are also known as universal basic income programs.

UBI is a series of recurring payments that individuals receive from the government.

These can be paid monthly, several times a year or just once a year.

For example, in Alexandria, Virginia, a Guaranteed Income pilot gives 150 participants $500 a month for two years.

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

It is available in Atlanta’s historic Old Fourth Ward but is expanding to at least two additional locations in Southwest Georgia and the Metro Atlanta suburbs.

The city of Birmingham, Alabama, is paying 110 single mothers $375 a month for a full year.
