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.

Tensions further increased during last season when Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton went head to head for the F1 title.

Horner and Wolff locked horns once again when Verstappen controversially snatched the title from Hamilton in Abu Dhabi.

This season's been no different with Horner repeatedly taking cheeky swipes at Wolff.

Horner claimed Wolff inherited his Mercedes empire, which was brushed off by the Austrian.

“And it’s very easy to pull his chain, and you can see it. Sometimes it affects him. So of course, when you’re competing, and last year was so intense and of course it was the first time he’d ever been in that situation, it’s always interesting to see how people react.

“And when they’re smashing headphones and so on, you can see that you got to them.”
