The City of Sacramento California is using tax dollars from Americans to pay  80 Sacramento residents  a  guaranteed basic income, and the recipients don’t have to anything to get the money.

It’s all through Sacramento’s Direct Investment Program, which is being run in partnership with United Way.

In total, 750-thousand dollars from the American Rescue Plan bailout, will be used to send monthly 5-hundred dollar checks to 80 residents,  for one year.

Since June of 2021,  United Way has been giving 1-hundred low-income residents in Sacramento County 3-hundred dollars per month through the program.

It will last through June of 2023.
