Prince George's County Seal

If you are a City of Laurel resident who needs extra help paying the bills, the County is ready to help. 

Thrive Prince George’s is now accepting applications for its new Guaranteed Basic Income Program.

The monthly cash payment will go to those in need with no strings attached or repayment requirements.

The two-year, $4 million guaranteed-income pilot program is aimed at fostering economic stability and mobility for families in our community. 

Who Is Eligible and How It Works

The program will focus on two particularly vulnerable groups of  Prince Georgians - seniors on fixed incomes and economically vulnerable youth. 

Thrive Prince George's will provide a monthly stipend of $800 for 24 months to 50 youths (ages 18-24) who have aged out of the foster care system and 125+ seniors (ages 60+) with no strings attached and no employment-related requirements.

For more information and to apply for the program,  follow the link below to complete the Thrive Prince George’s eligibility form:
