The transfers will be delivered using the existing Targeted Social Assistance (TSA) system implemented by the State Agency for Social Protection (SASP). The TSA system includes an additional module to allow for additional payments in emergency situations and the eligibility criteria can be adapted to target the most food insecure communities. The transfers will be triggered at the oblast-level based on the spikes in the prices of key food groups. Once triggered, the program will target TSA beneficiary households with young children. This component will finance the cash transfers, and cover the costs of benefit administration, including the cost of expanding the capacity of the beneficiary data base. The proposed cash transfers will also provide an opportunity to use accompanying measure to promote optimal nutrition, appropriate hygiene, and preventive health services, as well COVID-19 infection prevention messaging (development of communication materials will be financed under Component 2).
