The fund closed the window to receive applications on December 31 to review households’ compliance with the required indicators before conducting field visits to verify the data provided. The next step would be to disburse cash assistance to eligible families as of April 2022.

Sawalha said that the government is studying the possibility of integrating the beneficiaries of the Monthly Cash Transfers Program of the National Aid Fund into the supplementary support program (Takaful), without negatively affecting the beneficiaries.

Sawalha continued, "We at the National Aid Fund are still in the process of analyzing the results of this study, and the extent to which Takaful instructions are in conformity with the beneficiaries of the Monthly Cash Transfers Program, and in light of that we will work to integrate them without causing a negative impact on the beneficiaries."

Sawalha indicated that the implementation of this merger may start in 2022, depending on the results of the study and the extent to which the previous beneficiaries match the new program, expecting that "the merger will be completed gradually within 3 years from the start of its implementation."

The number of beneficiaries of Monthly Cash Transfers Program is currently about 105,000 families.
