Exploring Guaranteed Income as a Strategy to Address Income Inequality

In 2019, Stockton, CA began the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration Program (SEED), an experiment in guaranteed income.

The program was designed with community input and provides $500 each month for 24 months to 125 residents. Program recipients can spend the payment on whatever they need, without conditions.
