Thank you for applying to the TAYportunity Guaranteed Income program! We have concluded our selection of eligible applicants. There was an overwhelming amount of interest.
The program will provide 300 randomly selected General Relief Opportunities for Work (GROW) Transitional Age Youth (TAY) ages 18-24 years old, with:
● A monthly GI issuance of $1,000;
● Supplemental food assistance, should CalFresh benefits be adversely affected;
● Benefits counseling services, financial literacy, and money management support; and
● Exemptions from having to meet General Relief income, resource, and time limit requirements.
To keep the selection process fair, and to ensure that everyone that applied had an equal chance of being selected, our researcher Jain Family Institute conducted a lottery to select 300 applicants for the program, and we are in the process of contacting them. We estimate this process could take several weeks. During this process some applicants may decide not to participate in the program or drop out of the process for various reasons, therefore, we may have to randomly select additional applicants. If you have not been contacted, it does not mean you have not been selected. This is an ongoing process that has not been finalized. Once this process is complete, we will send you another email.
