San Francisco launched its Guaranteed Income For Transgender People program Tuesday, which will give $1,200 per month to 55 San Francisco residents who earn less than $600 monthly and identify as transgender, nonbinary, gender non-conforming or intersex, according to the program’s website.
The program will prioritize illegal immigrants, people involved in prostitution, non-English speakers, disabled people and the homeless, according to the program website.
Those selected through the current application process will be part of a pilot program lasting 18 months, though the program will be extended depending on city funding.
Recipients will be required to stay in the San Francisco area to continue receiving funding, though they’re allowed to independently earn up to $4,000 monthly, according to the site.
