As disaster basic income is a mixture of welfare and economic policy, allocation of the funds raised will be in line with its intent. In other words, the funds will be used to support small business owners and unemployed people who can create a virtuous cycle of welfare and economy, and will take the form of local currencies.
- to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support those affected
- to support social welfare organizations in their disinfection and quarantine control efforts
