Minneapolis Guaranteed Basic Income Pilot Program Enrollment Services
As part of the federal American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA) to support state and local communities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Minneapolis initiated a pilot Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) program. The City’s GBI program will provide a pilot group of 200 low-income families and households $500 per month for 2 years. Eligible households reside in targeted zip codes with an annual income below 50% of the Area Median Income for Minneapolis. Additionally, participants must attest as to how they have been affected economically by the pandemic. This pilot cohort consists of 200 households, and an additional 250+ households will participate in ongoing surveys that will be part of a study with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis to evaluate the impacts of the GBI program.

One or more eligible employment service provider agencies will be selected through this RFQ to provide rapid enrollment of approximately 300 program participants, many of whom have already been selected for participation by the City. Funds will be awarded for these enrollment services, estimated to begin by July 11, 2022. Minneapolis Employment and Training needs the selected provider(s) to enroll participants as soon as possible to be a part of the on-going GBI pilot program study.
