Economic insecurity, poverty, and wealth inequality are among the most persistent and pressing challenges in Santa Cruz County and communities across the nation. Many people have to work multiple full-time jobs—often with low wages and no benefits— and are still living paycheck-to-paycheck, unsure whether they'll have enough money to pay for food, housing, transportation, childcare, utilities, and other basic needs. City and county government, local funders, and nonprofit organizations around the country are reimagining and rethinking their approach to solving these complex challenges. They are working together to implement guaranteed income pilots, providing direct, recurring cash payments to households with no strings attached and no work requirements. Register here:
