The UBI program is being launched in Minneapolis, Minnesota.


Families are currently completing the enrollment process to receive the payments.

Many don’t have bank accounts, but a local bank has offered the service.

Having a bank account is not a requirement to enroll in the program.


Minneapolis UBI program explained

The length of the UBI payments will last from Spring of this year, 2022, to Spring of 2024.
