The National Cash Transfer Office (NCTO) has commenced massive disbursement of COVID-19 RRR to the Second Batch beneficiaries of the Programmme.

The COVID-19 RRR Payment which commenced on Wednesday is ongoing. If you applied for the second Batch using the State/LGA/Community designated codes, and participated in the Verification processes, expect your N30,000 payment soon.

The N30,000 COVID-19 RRR cash transfer is a lump sum of N5,000 monthly cash transfer for six months duration of the COVID-19 RRR Cash Transfer Programme.

Recall that following the rap up of the first phase of the COVID-19 RRR Cash Transfer Programme in June 2022, the National Social Safetey-Nets Coordinating Office (NASSCO) said it has embarked on $800m NASSP Scale Up designed to pay cash transfers to 10.2 million Nigerians.

NASSCO stated that the programme is targeting more potential beneficiaries, adding that the Rapid Response Register project is not ending anytime soon.

The Interim Head of NCTO, Dr Ibraheem Adam, speaking to News Agency of Nigeria in November said that first aspect of the Cash Transfer Programme which is the Conditional Cash Transfer had ended on Dec 31, 2022 but there is a scale up programme that is going to address the issue of economic shock.

Adam restated the Federal Government's commitment to lift 100 Million Nigerians out of Poverty, noting that disbursement of the COVID-RRR fund would encourage beneficiaries to come out of poverty, to be productive and establish a sustainable means of livelihood.

"A loan was collected from the World Bank to give to Nigerians, not to eat but to encourage beneficiaries to come out of poverty, to be productive and establish a sustainable means of livelihood.

"So, if this is sustained, we can say that the aspiration of the president to take 100 million Nigerians out of poverty will be achieved."

The Rapid Response Register (RRR) for COVID-19 Cash Transfer, a World Bank supported National Social Safety Nets Project, is an intervention by the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to identify and document the Urban and Semi-urban poor who have lost their income streams and consequently become poorer from the hash economic impact of COVID-19.

The Register is being built nationwide as an expansion of the existing National Social Safety Nets Project (NASSP) to target those in this category of non-traditional poor in urban and high density locations and/or slums where the COVID-19 Pandamic has affected economic life.

Individuals/Household captured under the COVID-19 Rapid Response Register are paid N5,000 for a period of 6 Months.
