4-CT is eager to experiment with innovative direct cash aid pilot programs through strategic partnerships

4-CT is reaching Connecticut residents both directly and through strategic partnerships. Together with local and national organizations, health centers, philanthropists and government officials, 4-CT is developing pilot programs to demonstrate the economic, health and social benefits of guaranteed income programs for targeted populations and improve systems for delivering support to Connecticut’s most vulnerable populations.

What Is Guaranteed Income?

Guaranteed income provides recurring, unrestricted, no-strings-attached cash assistance to targeted individuals for a set period of time.

4-CT’s guaranteed income programs aim to give residents in need the agency to make their own decisions and the resources to improve their lives while addressing systemic injustices.

Guaranteed income differs from universal income, which is not targeted to a specific population.
