Cash assistance

February 3, 2021

The term cash assistance refers to direct cash transfers to individuals, families and communities in need of humanitarian support in lieu of in-kind commodities or direct service delivery. The term can be used interchangeably with ‘cash-based interventions’ (CBI), ‘cash transfer programming’ (CTP), ‘cash and voucher assistance’ (CVA), and ‘cash-based programming (CBP)’. It does not include fund transfers from donors, payment of incentives to the staff of local authorities, payment of salaries to national staff and those of implementing partners, or social protection payments in support of government. It also excludes remittances and aspects of financial inclusion such as insurances, loans or micro-finance.
