Just Income GNV UBI payments
The goal of the program is to give formerly incarcerated individuals access to funds and eliminate barriers to a successful reentry.
Payments after that will be $600 per month for 11 more months.
115 residents will be randomly selected from the applications to receive the payments.
In order to be eligible, you need to be released from either a Florida state prison, federal prison, Florida county jail with a new felony conviction, or have begun felony probation in Alachua County.
There are two groups: recipients and allies.
Recipients will receive the monthly payments.
Allies will be offered paid surveys and interviews with access to administrative records.
