In partnership with UpTogether, CHV launched a direct cash pilot in 2021, selecting fifty families via lottery from the CHV community to receive an unconditional $583 per month. With this two-year pilot program, Camp Harbor View joined a burgeoning national guaranteed income movement.
Pilot programs and studies in more than 100 cities nationally have shown that programs that offer a steady source of income for low-income or historically marginalized communities, with minimal strings attached, led to major leaps in wellbeing and opportunity.
