You can call it their “Cash for Criminals” program though it’s official being called the “Dream Keeper Fellowship” and it’s being funded by the Democrat Mayor’s $60 million initiative to direct taxpayer fund to “Black and African American community”.
“The program, which will launch as a pilot in October, is called the Dream Keeper Fellowship. It’s San Francisco’s latest iteration of a guaranteed-income program that will provide high-risk individuals with $300 a month as a start.
Participants will be able to earn up to $200 more a month by hitting milestones in the program, such as landing a job interview, complying with probation or consistently meeting with a mentor.
The initiative will pair participants with newly hired life coaches from the Street Violence Intervention Program, known as SVIP, who will help the them make the right choices and access services.
The theory is that the up to $500 stipend will serve as an incentive to participate — and stay engaged.”
David Muhammad, Executive Director of the National Institute of Criminal Justice Reform, tells KRON-TV, “it’s an incentive for achieving a milestone. For instance, what we are proposing at the moment is that people involved in the program will receive a $300 a month guaranteed income stipend as a part of the city’s larger guaranteed income program. In addition to that, they would be eligible for receiving up to $200 additionally a month for achieving certain outcomes.”
How will city official go about identifying program participants, will they take out an ad in the newspaper asking “do you want to shoot that punk from the other block? Well instead of shooting him, how about we pay you $500 not to “put a cap in his ass”.
