Specifics about FG Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT)
The Federal Government of Nigeria has partnered with the World Bank under a National Social Safety Nets Project (NASSP) to support the development of safety nets with the hope of reducing the number of vulnerable persons within the country.
To implement NASSP, the Government has established a National Social Safety Net Coordinating Office (NASSCO) to coordinate existing social safety net programs at the Federal level, and a Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) under the National Social Investment Programmes to operate safety net transfers to targeted poor and vulnerable households across Nigeria.
Categories of Cash Transfers under the CCT
Conditional Cash Transfer:
This transfer supports the poor and vulnerable to improve household consumption with the aim of reducing poverty and preventing the vulnerable from falling further into poverty and building resilience to withstand shock.
The top-up transfer aims at responding to deficiencies in capacity and lack of investment in human capital. It creates an incentive for extreme poor households to invest in education, health and nutrition, environment and productivity.
Eligibility/Requirements for Conditional Cash Transfer
All States in Nigeria are eligible to participate in the program, subject to fulfilling certain conditions. All households identified as poor and vulnerable through a selection process designed by the National Social Registry, are eligible for Conditional Cash Transfers. Payments are, however, made to only those who fall below the proxy means test, having been identified as needy and deserving.
