Just Income: An Unconditional Guaranteed Income for Formerly Incarcerated People
Just Income GNV
Gainesville, FL

This team will provide 12 months of unrestricted guaranteed income directly to people returning home from incarceration in Alachua County, Florida.

Formerly incarcerated individuals face significant structural challenges and the threat of re-incarceration if they cannot pay burdensome fees. This guaranteed income program alleviates these challenges by providing a stable source of income, reducing re-incarceration, and fostering a sense of belonging in the community. It also challenges misconceptions about those in poverty and the criminal justice system. Allowing people to invest in themselves improves well-being, saves public resources, and makes a safer community.
