ATLANTA—I.M.P.A.C.T. (Income Mobility Program for Atlanta Community Transformation), the City’s first guaranteed income pilot program available to low-income Atlantans, opens its application and survey period on Wednesday, January 26 at 8 a.m. through 11:59 p.m. on February 2, 2022, with the full support of Mayor Andre Dickens.
In one of her final acts as mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms announced a partnership between the City of Atlanta and the Urban League of Greater Atlanta to launch a new initiative to examine the benefit of a guaranteed basic income to help end poverty.
The pilot project will serve 300 city of Atlanta residents who are at least 18 years old and live below 200% of the federal poverty guideline ($55,500 for a household of four). I.M.P.A.C.T. participants will receive $500 per month in guaranteed income during the 12-month pilot period. Applications and surveys must be completed online at www.ulgacoaimpact.org between January 26 starting at 8 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. on February 2 to be considered for the program.
Any low-income Atlantans who believe they meet the I.M.P.A.C.T. eligibility criteria may complete the online application and survey. The final program participants will be selected at random from all those who complete the application and survey, including qualifying information.
