by: Lorraine Gabbert

A state bill from a Silicon Valley legislator could bring hope and help to homeless high school students.

Introduced by state Sen. Dave Cortese, Senate Bill 1341 provides $50 million to $75 million in aid to homeless youth. The bill aims to uplift about 15,000 high school seniors with guaranteed income of $1,000 per month for five months until they begin college, vocational training or enter the workforce. The bill has cleared the state Senate and is headed to the Assembly for approval. The income will be provided from April 2023 to August 2023.
