Tacoma launching guaranteed income program

As part of what officials are calling Growing Resilience In Tacoma, or GRIT, at least 100 residents will receive a monthly $500 stipend for a year. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice, who have established the Center for Guaranteed Income Research, plan to work with the city of Tacoma, as well as other cities, to gain insights into the benefits of guaranteed income programs.
