A $500 monthly payments pilot program in El Monte, California is set to help residents with their basic needs.
$500 Monthly Payments Pilot Program
Time is running out for Californians to apply for a new pilot program that offers $500 monthly payments to help with their basic needs.
According to The US Sun, the program, which has been enacted in two locations, El Monte and Sacramento, aims to provide support to low-income families who are struggling to afford essentials like food and utilities due to rising costs and inflation.
The application for the $500 monthly payments offered in Sacramento has already closed, but the residents of El Monte still have until the end of the day to submit their applications and present their proof of eligibility.
To be eligible for the $500 monthly payments, you must:
live in the city of El Monte
be a single woman without a spouse or partner living with you
have to have at least one child below 18 years old who lives with you
The income for the household must be at or below the federal poverty level for this year, which is $30,000 for a family of four.
To be eligible for the $500 monthly payments, you’ll need to have supporting documents that show proof of income, identification, school enrollment, and residency, and that you needed financial assistance during Covid-19.
