A guaranteed income changes lives.

125 randomly selected residents. $500 per month. 12 months.

The Guaranteed Income Validation Effort (G.I.V.E.) is Indiana's first mayor-led guaranteed income demonstration. Launched in May 2021 by Mayor Jerome A. Prince.

 

G.I.V.E.  provides 125 randomly selected residents $500/month for 12 months. The cash is completely unconditional, with no strings attached and no work requirements.

Aiming to test a simple yet innovative solution to poverty and inequality, G.I.V.E. follows in the footsteps of the nation's first mayor-led program, The Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration ( SEED); preliminary findings show how just $500 a month can provide the dignity that everyone deserves.

"We can all agree that many disparities continue to exist in our society. More often than not, the net effect is disproportionately adverse for constituents of legacy cities, such as Gary. 

To that end,  as a means of augmenting the present social safety net,  I wholeheartedly embrace the concept of MGI as presented by the coalition."

Mayor Jerome A. Prince
