Abundant Birth Project Evaluation Study

In a community-academic partnership, Expecting Justice is piloting the first pregnancy income supplement program in the US—the Abundant Birth Project (ABP). The program will provide unconditional cash supplements to Black and Pacific Islander mothers and birthing people as a strategy to reduce preterm birth and improve economic outcomes for these communities.


The Abundant Birth Project Evaluation Study aims to evaluate the program and understand how extra cash during pregnancy impacts pregnant women and birthing people and their babies. The research team includes researchers from UC Berkeley, UCSF and community researchers from Black and Pacific Islander communities. We hope that results from this Evaluation Study can be used to create similar programs for pregnant people around the Bay Area and across the nation.
