Economic Security Project Action Statement on California’s Guaranteed Additional Income for Families in Need (GAIN) Act

06. 10. 2024

The GAIN Act builds on the success of guaranteed income pilots to improve health incomes in households with income volatility.

Economic Security Calfornia Action Director Teri Olle:

“Rep. Schiff’s GAIN Act is a brilliant prescription for a healthy California. Guaranteed income is proven to stabilize budgets for families earning low incomes, which improves financial health, physical, and mental health. This legislation builds on the success of guaranteed income pilot programs we’ve seen right here in California that have allowed residents to experience less income volatility, anxiety, and depression, and is a significant step toward Economic Security Project’s north star goal of a federal guaranteed income.”
