It has taken some time, but soon, eligible Americans will be able to apply for $500 in monthly payments.

One of the cities across the nation to test a guaranteed income program is Rochester, New York.


The American Rescue Plan Act’s $2.2 million funding was authorized by the city council back in December 2021, and it will be used for this project.

The program will finally launch this spring, after some necessary planning, according to RochesterFirst.


According to the regional news source, details are still being worked out and have been modified.

However, the original proposal stated that households would only be eligible for the payments if their income was at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.
