More COVID-19 Relief Grants to social protection beneficiaries


The Social Protection Board within the Ministry of Social Transformation, Human Resource Development and the Blue Economy will be providing a COVID-19 Relief Grant to its social protection beneficiaries, that is, poor and vulnerable families who were re-registered last year with the Social Protection Board.

The COVID-19 Relief Grant aims to provide financial support to persons who were already vulnerable before COVID-19 and who have fallen further into economic hardships as a result of the pandemic.

This grant has been made possible through a joint programme of the United Nations Response and Recovery Fund by the governments of Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Republic of Korea, Finland, New Zealand, Croatia, Iceland, Thailand, Slovak Republic and Cambodia, together with additional financial and technical assistance from UNICEF.

It complements other support already provided through the Board / Ministry
to other people impacted by COVID-19.

The assistance will be distributed the last week of February 2022 (February
21-25) as a one-time payment to cover the essential needs of the
beneficiaries for three months.

All eligible households will be contacted by the Social Protection Board
during the week of February 14th, as to the specific dates and times for the
distribution of grant payments, and the head of household or designated
person (guardian, caretaker) is advised to collect the cheque on the assigned
specific dates.

Beneficiaries are asked to wait for the call from the Board.

For any other question or information, you can contact the Social Protection Board at 268562-7515/562-7516 or email: social protectionboard
