  • Overview

    Since 2018, cash transfer programs in the US have increased substantially, driven by a cost-of living crisis, concerns over jobs lost to automation, and economic instability caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Governments, civil society, and private actors at the state, county, and city levels have implemented nearly 100 guaranteed income programs since 2018. Despite this growth, support for implementing such programs in the US has been quite limited.
