Baltimore Young Family Success Fund

The CASH Campaign is the nonprofit administrator for Baltimore City’s guaranteed income program called The Baltimore Young Family Success Fund (BYFSF). This pilot program targets young parents between the ages of 18-24, who have full or partial care-taking responsibilities for children, income at or below 300% of the federal poverty level and is a resident of Baltimore City. As part of a national movement to gather research about these models, Baltimore City launched its pilot with 200 participants who receive $1,000 of unrestricted funds monthly for 24 months. The final payment will be disbursed in July 2024.
