The program’s participants will be randomly selected to receive $500 monthly payments for a full year in order to counter President Joe Biden’s inflation and Lightfoot’s absurdly high taxes.
“I remain committed to making an equitable recovery from the pandemic to stabilize and ensure the wellbeing of all residents,” she wrote.
She also suggested that the program–The Chicago Resilient Communities Pilot–will help people recover from the lengthy and brutal lock downs that she forced onto the city.
“The Chicago Resilient Communities Pilot is a way for us to efficiently support the communities and households that were hardest hit by the pandemic with dignity as well as build on our work to eradicate poverty.”
Lightfoot concluded by bragging that she is on the cutting edge of welfare state politics, handing out more cash in wealth redistributions than any other city in the nation.
“I’m deeply proud to launch the largest cash assistance program of its kind in the country as we continue to provide economic relief to residents and strengthen our city.”
The city’s program will pick those who get money by lottery. Residents can apply for the random cash grab between April 25 and May 13.
In order to qualify, one need only “have experienced economic hardship related to COVID-19,” an easy feat in Lightfoot’s Chicago.
The new cash distribution program is in addition to gas and transit card handouts that were announced last week.
This new program, called “Chicago Moves,” will provide “$12.5 million in relief funding for disadvantaged Chicagoans.”
