800 residents to get guaranteed income in Compton Pledge 2-year pilot program

Compton Mayor Aja Brown says an organization called the Compton Pledge will begin giving 800 Compton residents free cash for a two-year period.

Each selected family will receive at least a few hundred dollars on a recurring basis, as well as tools that will help them access financial guidance, Brown said. Parents or other residents caring for dependents may receive more. The families will be randomly selected from a “pre-verified” group of low-income residents. A board made up of community organizations such as the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights and My Brother’s Keeper will advise the Compton Pledge on how to best reach marginalized communities.
