Financial Aid For St. Paul Families!

Great news for St. Paul residents! Starting this fall, some St. Paul families will be receiving monthly cash payments. A city program called the People's Prosperity Pilot, will pay up to 150 families $500 per month for up to 18 months.

To be selected, you must already be enrolled in St. Paul's CollegeBound program and demonstrate financial hardship resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Participating families will randomly be selected from the four most economically challenged zip codes in the city:

  • 55104 (St. Paul: Midway, Frogtown, Union Park)

  • 55106 (St. Paul: Dayton's Bluff, Payne-Phalen)

  • 55119 (St. Paul: Battle Creek - Highwood)

  • 55117 (St. Paul: North End, Thomas-Dale)

Once selected, households will be contacted to complete enrollment and must verify they have a COVID economic impact to be eligible. These criteria include: 

  • Not hold public office in the City of Saint Paul or be a city employee; and

  • Be the parent or guardian of a CollegeBound Saint Paul beneficiary whose contact information at the time of enrollment into CollegeBound Saint Paul indicates residence in zip codes 55104, 55106, 55119 or 55117; and 

  • Demonstrate a COVID-19-related adverse financial impact, such as:

  • Adverse financial consequences experienced by the applicant as a result of being quarantined, being furloughed or laid off, or having work hours reduced due to COVID-19; or

  • Adverse financial consequences experienced by the applicant as a result of being unable to work due to the applicant’s COVID-19 diagnosis, or a spouse’s or dependent’s COVID-19 diagnosis; or

  • Adverse financial consequences experienced by the applicant as a result of lack of childcare due to COVID-19; or

  • Adverse financial consequences experienced as a result of closing or reducing hours of a business that the applicant owns or operates due to COVID-19; or

  • Other demonstrable adverse financial consequences experienced by the applicant due to COVID-19. 

The first cash payments are expected to begin this fall. The $1.5 million needed to fund the program will mostly come from federal CARES funds and contributions from nonprofits.
