Direct Payments

Millions of Americans are about to receive their monthly payments beginning this January 2023. It will be the first round of monthly direct payments worth up to $500. In an article published in The U.S. Sun, here are the beneficiaries of the direct payments:

Chelsea, Massachusetts

The city began the second phase of its UBI program last week in which it would provide up to 700 more households with monthly payments of up to $400. 2,000 households in Massachusetts received monthly payments from November 2020 to August 2021 during the first phase of Chelsea Eats.

However, the second installment of the scheme will only provide people with cash for three months. To qualify, you must be a Chelsea resident earning less than 30% of the Area Median Income, which is the same as in the last round.
