What is BEEM?

The Black Economic Equity Movement (BEEM) project is a Guaranteed Income project. Guaranteed Income is a temporary monthly payment made to people without any requirements or obligations. It’s an approach to supporting people, so they have a little breathing room, can take care of immediate needs, and plan for the future. The BEEM project lasts for two years, with half of the BEEM participants getting the payments in the first year and half getting the payments in the second year. BEEM participants will have access to financial coaches and peer support for both years.
