The Georgia Resilience and Opportunity Fund
Key Partners: In Her Hands
In Her Hands is an initiative of the Georgia Resilience and Opportunity (GRO) Fund and GiveDirectly. In Her Hands provides recurring, no-strings-attached cash disbursements to program participants—guaranteed income—to promote greater income stability and lessen financial volatility. The program provides an average of $850 a month for 24 months to 650 women in three Georgia communities.
The Atlanta Fed has partnered with In Her Hands to create the CLIFF Guaranteed Income Dashboard to help inform program design. The dashboard is used to identify which populations would be helped the most from a guaranteed income and the extent to which securing benefit loss waivers is important. In addition, In Her Hands is using the dashboard to educate potential program participants on how a guaranteed income could affect their eligibility for social safety net programs.
Note that the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta does not provide grants or funding to the general public or to partner organizations. We do not endorse or make any representations as to the suitability of partner organizations or their programs, and we do not advise on distribution of funds by partners.
