Outreach Specialist

This position works with the Institute for Research on Poverty and the City of Madison to assist with planning and deliver the Madison Forward Fund program, a guaranteed income pilot project. The Madison Forward Fund is an experiment to determine how a guaranteed base income could address poverty and create more access and opportunity for residents and their families struggling economically. The Madison Forward Fund program is modeled after the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration (SEED), which was the nation’s first municipal-level Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) program. Comparable to SEED, the Madison Forward Fund program will evaluate how an income floor of $500 a month can improve the economic security of and well-being of City of Madison residents. This position will work directly with Madison Forward Fund recipients to administer payments; work with program partners (Madison Mayor’s Office, Madison Guaranteed Income Pilot Program Task Force, TASC, and others) to plan and execute program activities and ensure adherence to policies; and work with a research fellow to oversee program evaluation.
