To be eligible for Guaranteed Income to Grow Ann Arbor, you need to be an entrepreneur, which can mean many different things!
We want to include people who have side hustles, are trying to start a business, who have a business going, or are gig workers. This could range from shoveling snow in the winter to having your own lawn care business or anything in between. Maybe you sell your crafts or do catering on the side. You could provide paid child care or elder care as a self-employed person. You might be an independent contractor or a freelancer. Musicians and artists are welcome to apply as well!
Additionally, you need to be an Ann Arbor resident (which includes those residing in homeless shelters in Ann Arbor) and have income at or below 225% of the federal poverty line. The chart shows the dollar amounts, which vary based on the size of your household.
