Resources like guaranteed income, universal basic income and other cash transfer programs have captured the attention of many around the world who see targeted monetary deposits as one of the best ways to lift people out of poverty. Join us as we talk with leaders in the cash transfer world to discuss the different ways in which these funds can be used to help people make ends meet. From targeted programs for Black and Pacific Islander mothers and newborns to expansive, statewide tax credits, this panel will cover the breadth and depth of ideas around getting money to the people who need it.

Co-presented by APA Northern California (1.5 AICP CM credits available), the Economic Security Project and The San Francisco Foundation.
