HUNDREDS of needy Americans will receive cash from a new relief program that will go into effect this year.

The city of Denver, Colorado plans to expand its universal basic income program following a successful pilot.

1Denver's UBI program will roll out to three groups of beneficiaries

The Denver Basic Income Project provided money to 11 individuals in 2021, and sent cash to another 28 Denver residents in July.

Now the program will provide aid to more than 800 people through three different payment schemes.

Under the plan, the city said it will give 260 individuals $6,500 upfront, followed by $500 monthly payments for 11 months.

The second group of 260 people will be getting $1,000 per month for a year.

And the last batch of 300 will get $50 per month for a year.

The project has raised more than $7million in funding thus far.

However, it needs an extra $2million to assist the first round of participants, reports Westword.

Who is eligible?

This phase of the Denver Basic Income Project is primarily geared toward helping people experiencing housing insecurity.

According to the program, participants will be selected through a randomized process.

To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years of age and without stable housing.

Denver defines this as being without “fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.”

That includes:

  • Living in cars, parks public spaces, camping grounds, or hotels and motels
  • Sharing housing because of economic hardship
  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters
  • Those whose nighttime residence is not designed for “regular sleeping accommodations”

Moreover, you must not have “severe and unaddressed mental health or substance use needs,” the city said.

According to Westword, applications are not being accepted yet but the program is expected to kick off later this year.

If applicants are selected, they will be placed into one of three groups – meaning they cannot choose themselves.

Others offering UBI

Across the country, dozens of states and cities have kicked off UBI programs.

This includes Mount Vernon, New York, which will send $500 monthly payments to 200 residents for a year.

To participate, households must earn at least $15,000 annually.

Income caps vary by household size, but families must make less than 80% of the county's average income to qualify.

Another program will allow eligible residents in Mountain View, California, to apply for a $500 UBI program.

The maximum annual income to be eligible is $44,750 in 2021 for a family of three.

Applications are expected to open in mid-to-late summer, according to the city.

And more than 100 immigrant families in Coachella in California will be able to apply for $9,600 worth of payments.  

Immigrant families with young children who have been excluded from federal relief will be prioritized.

Those eligible will receive an email with steps on how to complete an application through the Mission Asset Fund application portal, according to the non-profit organization.

It will be open to invited parties for 30 days.

The program is expected to launch in October.

ASK IRA: Could Erik Spoelstra go with revolving-door Heat lineups?

Q: Hi, Ira. OK, this might be a good problem for Erik Spoelstra to have, but what if Victor Oladipo outplays Tyler Herro during training camp? He might be as good offensively and probably better defensively. If the Heat are, in fact, a meritocracy, could things play out that way where Tyler remains the sixth man or are they more in need of showcasing him for a possible trade down the line, maybe right before the trade deadline? I’m concerned that would cause some locker room issues. – Eddie, South Bend, Ind.

A: I believe it is more a matter of best fit, both for the starting lineup and the bench. Look, Erik Spoelstra already has started Kendrick Nunn over Tyler Herro, and then stayed with a struggling Duncan Robinson over a surging Tyler Herro for the better part of last season. Rotation matters most. So being outplayed during the preseason does not necessarily mean being demoted or elevated. The rotation is a factor of team chemistry, as well.

Q: What are the chances that Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro or Victor Oladipo will win Max Strus’ starting position by opening night? – Russell, Miami.

A: I’m not sure the Heat are going into camp with a “Max Strus starting position.” As stated above, chemistry will dictate the lineup and the rotation. For example, if Caleb Martin is the starting power forward, it could call for a different cocktail than if the Heat open with a pair of big men in the power rotation. Heck, Max could be in an undersized power mix. Camp and the preseason could have a lot to do with what might follow.

Q: Would you agree that Kevin Durant did not learn anything from the contract extensions LeBron James would sign in Cleveland? LeBron would sign a two-year contract with a player option for the second year. This would allow him to pressure the team to keep him happy. By signing the four-year extension last summer, Kevin gave away his leverage and the team holds all of the cards. – Karl, Miami.

A: And, yet, hasn’t Kevin Durant seemingly gotten everything he has wanted from the Nets over his Brooklyn tenure, from a year’s pay without playing, to adding Kyrie Irving and James Harden, to getting a coach he said that he liked until he said he didn’t? And the other argument to be made is that he still seems to be holding plenty of leverage, including the Nets looking to facilitate his trade demand at fair-market value. It has become clear that the NBA maxim is happy player, happy life . . . no matter the contract status.
