The co-author of L.A. County’s new guaranteed income program stopped by KTLA 5 Weekend Morning News to explain how residents can apply to receive $1,000 per month for three years as part of the county’s “Breathe” pilot program.

Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell of L.A. County’s Second District discussed how the pilot program’s approach is a way to address poverty without criminalizing the poor and helps families invest in themselves.

L.A. County residents can apply online through April 13.
