A program called the Magnolia Mother’s Trust will be giving monthly UBI payments to 110 Black mothers in Jackson, Mississippi.
This is one of the first UBI programs that has been around since 2018.
The second year was launched in March of 2020 to help 110 mothers.
UBI monthly payments for the Magnolia Mother’s Trust
The goal of this program is to give people the freedom to build their own lives the way they want with cash assistance.
By providing payments without restrictions, families have been shown to pull themselves out of poverty.
Over $10 million dollars from the Economic Security Project has been used to create research on projects that combat poverty, including UBI programs.
Residents who qualify must be Black mothers currently struggling financially.
