The City of Boulder invites community members to apply for membership in a Community Task Force to help shape key elements and outcomes of the Guaranteed Income Pilot Project.
Through this pilot project the city will utilize federal COVID-19 relief funding to provide monthly, unrestricted cash assistance to help low-income community members thrive.
The Community Task Force will provide input to city staff and project consultants, Impact Charitable, on project elements such as target population, amount and duration of cash assistance, participant eligibility criteria, project outcomes and evaluation.
City of Boulder staff and Impact Charitable will select Task Force participants based on low-income lived experience, diverse personal identities including historically underrepresented communities, experience with design and evaluation of programs that benefit low-income community members, and availability and commitment to this project.
Most Task Force activities will take place in Jan. – April 2023. Applicants are expected to attend three meetings in Jan. 2023 which will be held in-person at the Penfield Tate Municipal Building at 1777 Broadway. Mandatory meetings will be held on:
Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 6 – 8:00 p.m.
Tuesday, Jan. 24 from 6 – 8:00 p.m.
Monday, Jan. 30 from 6 – 8:00 p.m.
Additional group meetings will be scheduled as necessary. The city will provide participants with a stipend, meals during meetings, and other services, such as language interpretation, childcare and transportation assistance, as needed.
Applications are available in both English and Spanish and are due by 11:58 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 8, 2023.
