The Alameda City Council will consider whether to implement a Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) pilot program, designed to help Alameda’s most vulnerable residents who are disproportionately affected by a wide range of financial challenges.
Guaranteed Basic Income
The City of Alameda posted three different requests for proposals (RFP) in search of partners for their Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) Pilot Program. The city is soliciting an implementation partner, a financial partner and a research partner for the pilot program.
At its May 17 meeting, the City Council approved a pilot program that will give 150 low-income households in Alameda monthly payments of $1,000 for 24 months, starting in spring of 2023.
