Stimulus update: Michigan to send monthly payments of $528 to low-income small business owners in 15 days

Starting in January, monthly payments of $528 will be sent out to 100 entrepreneurs with low incomes in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The next payment is slated for Feb. 15.

The two-year guaranteed income pilot program, called Guaranteed Income to Grow Ann Arbor, is led by the University of Michigan’s Poverty Solutions team. The payments started going out in January to selected applicants, and they will be sent out on the 15th of each month, depending on when weekends or holidays fall, Kristin Seefeldt, the associate director of Poverty Solutions, told the Washington Examiner.

“This guaranteed income pilot is about celebrating residents who do much to strengthen our community but are still struggling to make ends meet,” Seefeldt said in October. Seefeldt is also an associate professor of social work and public policy at the University of Michigan.
