GiveDirectly: Send money directly to the extreme poor.

We’re delivering cash to families impacted by COVID-19 in the U.S.

We’re responding to this crisis by doing what we’ve done for a decade: delivering cash. Each household will receive $1k, and we expect the main constraint on how many we can reach will be how much we can raise.

We also plan to respond internationally, and are finalizing those details. Will share shortly.

We’re beginning by targeting vulnerable households enrolled in SNAP, living in the areas hardest hit by COVID-19.

In partnership with Propel, we’re able to identify vulnerable households on SNAP, most of whom are single mothers. We’ll begin by enrolling 200 households to receive the first payments and then expand, focusing on other populations in need who could be missed or underserved by other programs. We’ll update payment size and structure as we learn more about the need.
