A new program in Los Angeles County is offering universal basic income, with $1,000 monthly payments to a select group of young adults.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services introduced the pilot program, which will provide a three-year guaranteed income for about 300 people ages 18 to 24, the agency said.
Recipients will be randomly selected to receive the monthly payments, according to a news release from L.A. County Supervisor Hilda Solis.
Those eligible must currently be enrolled in the General Relief Opportunities for Work, or GROW, program, which provides employment and training services for young adults who face employment and educational barriers and often come from vulnerable backgrounds, including being unhoused or unsheltered.
