Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott To Launch Program For Guaranteed Monthly Income To Some Low-Income Families

February 10, 2021
Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott is joining other mayors across the country to create a guaranteed income pilot program. The group, Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, includes mayors who are advocating for direct, recurring cash payments to citizens. “Baltimore is the birthplace of redlining and residential segregation.

To ensure the economic security and dignity of our residents, we must be willing to invest in bold solutions,” said Mayor Brandon M. Scott.
