There are hundreds of young Americans that can qualify for a UBI payment program soon that pays $350 per month for 10 months.
Those who wish to apply need to show that they are disconnected from work and school, which is a requirement.
The program was originally announced last year with a grant worth $500,000.
The grant comes from Mayors for a Guaranteed Income.
The goal is to help those who need it most, especially after the number of disconnected youth increased from COVID-19.
Youth are being directly invested in by being a part of this program.
