Podcast: Is Giving Away Cash the Best Way to Cut Poverty? (Next City)

Guaranteed income has gone from a dream to reality in numerous pilot programs across the country. In this episode of the podcast, Next City executive director Lucas Grindley talks with the leader of Magnolia Mother’s Trust, which has served more than 230 Black mothers since 2018. The women are given $1,000 per month for 12 months, with no strings attached. One of the things that makes this program special is that it was designed by the mothers themselves.
