Haiti - Social : $60M grant from the IDB, to help vulnerable populations
The Inter-American Development Bank (IBD) approved a $60 million grant to improve food security, enhance the medium- and long-term climate resilience of vulnerable populations in Haiti, and better assist displaced people and returning migrants.

An initial $40 million component of the grant offers cash transfers to provide temporary income in food-insecure areas. To qualify for some of the transfers, recipients must participate in community projects focused on resilience and climate change mitigation. This program also includes activities to attend to the unique needs of vulnerable women. The transfers will begin flowing in January 2023 and will benefit approximately 52,000 households with a total of 260,000 people.

A second $13 million component of the aid is designed to expand essential health services for displaced people and returning migrants and improve the continuity of these services. Part of the funds will also go toward broadening the Information System of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor to identify those most in need of help.

$60 million grant will be disbursed over the course of three years and will be administered by Haiti’s Fund for Economic and Social Assistance (FAES).
