County board allocates $2M to guaranteed-income pilot program for low-income residents

Posted on

“The Board of Supervisors voted 6-2 May 23 to allocate $2 million for a pilot ‘economic mobility’ program for low-income county residents. Proposed by Supervisor Koran Saines (D-Sterling), the program would distribute monthly payments to residents at or below 30% of the area median income. In Loudoun County, 30% AMI is $32,550 for a one-person household or $46,450 for a family of four. Recipients would be able to use the funds for groceries, rent, paying down debt, or anything else they need, Saines said, calling the program a ‘steroid shot’ for families in need of assistance.”
