These programs offer money to low-income residents with no strings attached

Usually, the programs are government-sponsored or run by not-for-profits.

In most cases, there are no strings attached to how the cash can be used and it doesn’t have to be paid back.

While there is growing support or these programs, those who oppose them say they discourage people from finding work.
