The 100 Project for EBT Fresh Participants – Donations Needed
$1000 to 100, 000 Families in 100 Days
(CNN)Stacey Abrams joined forces with Andrew Yang on Tuesday to announce the launch of a new campaign aimed at providing $1,000 in direct cash payments to 100,000 families receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.
The two Democrats unveiled the “Project 100” campaign, an effort organized by nonprofit GiveDirectly, software company Propel, and education advocacy group Stand for Children. The effort has already raised $55 million. The group announced Tuesday that the campaign has several celebrity backers, including Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Halsey, Stephen Colbert, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and others. Project 100 is, by far, the most ambitious Covid-19 private direct payments initiative to date in the United States
Families are in need of help now and that is why we are asking you, if you are in a position to give, please take part in this program and give a donation.
GiveDirectly Fresh EBT and have also teamed up to give the $1000 cash transfers, no strings attached, to families in financial need to help make ends meet during the Coronavirus crisis. The only way to register is to fill out an enrollment form if it appears inside the Fresh EBT app. Funds are limited, so not everyone will be able to receive a transfer. There is no way to apply to this program outside of being a participant of the the Fresh EBT app.

While COVID-19 has been tough on everyone, it has been particularly disastrous for SNAP recipients, many of whom were already barely making ends meet. 86% of Propel Fresh EBT app users who work have lost significant income in the last few weeks. More than half of users report they only have a few days of food/money on hand, and that stable housing is at risk. See findings and stories here. Project 100 will provide a critical lifeline to 100,000 families across the country who receive SNAP benefits and use Propel’s Fresh EBT App (if you receive SNAP, check it out — it’s a terrific resource). Families need help NOW, but tens of millions will wait months for their stimulus payment. That’s why Stand for Children teamed up with Propel and GiveDirectly to launch Project 100, a nationwide campaign to provide $1,000 direct cash transfers to 100,000 families in dire need in the next 100 days.
That’s why we’re asking every person with the means to please visit www.Project100.US to help families stay afloat.
Millions of parents put out of work by the pandemic are out of money and facing impossible choices:
Food or baby formula?
Rent or medicine?
Car payment or water bill?
