Baltimore Guaranteed Income Pilot Program
Please Give Your Input!
This fall, Baltimore will launch a guaranteed income pilot to see how it can help residents reach financial security and needs your input. Guaranteed income is the distribution of cash payments with no strings attached and no work requirements. It is meant to supplement, not replace, existing forms of food, housing and medical assistance.

Please share your input through the survey or participate in a focus group:

Overseen by the Mayor’s Office of Children & Family Success, Baltimore’s guaranteed income pilot will be a short-term program in which a small, specific group of residents will receive payments and the impact of those payments will be tracked and measured.

Baltimore residents will have an opportunity to weigh in on program details, like who will participate in the pilot and how long it will last (survey above). The committee will also conduct focus groups in late June, with a goal of completing the pilot design by late summer and launching a guaranteed income pilot program in Baltimore this fall.
