Madison Forward Fund
Local leaders announced on Monday June 20, 2022, a new program that will guarantee direct payments to select families, adding Madison to a growing list of communities around the country that are offering a novel kind of support for those who need it most.
Dubbed the Madison Forward Fund, the city’s guaranteed income program will provide 155 families with $500 per month for a full year. Those who are selected for the program can then use the funds with no strings attached, meaning they can put it toward any expense of their choice.
