A COMMUNITY BUILT ON TRUST
The Guaranteed Income Community of Practice (GICP) convenes policy experts, advocates, researchers, leaders, funders, practitioners and elected officials to learn and collaborate in the maturing arena of unconditional cash programs.
Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha & Dr. Luke Schafer, RxKids
Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha and Dr. Luke Schafer share the inception and creation of the program RxKids in Flint, Michigan. Rx Kids is the first-ever citywide cash prescription program for pregnant people and babies. Rx Kids provides all pregnant people in the city of Flint with no-strings-attached cash of $1,500 during pregnancy and $500 each month throughout a baby’s first year. The program is also the first ever pilot to be partially funded by public TANF dollars, a groundbreaking moment for the Guaranteed Income movement.
Demonstrations Supported Nationwide
A FOUNDATION OF EQUITY
The GICP builds on the success of two landmark guaranteed income programs: the Magnolia Mother’s Trust and the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration. The lessons learned from the first large-scale community-based pilot (MMT) and the first mayor-led demonstration (SEED) produced robust systems of support for new equity-focused guaranteed income programs to use.
