Government to Person (G2P) Payment Guidelines
Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) Uganda is the country’s leading institution on financial inclusion and inclusive financial market development. FSD Uganda provides technical assistance and catalytic grants to enable innovation and scale. This is achieved through research, policy analysis that enables evidence-based decisioning, private sector support through de-risking and experimental grants that push the frontiers of thinking on how the financial sector can serve the real economy, particularly the most vulnerable. We have a focus on women, refugees, youth, and small holder farmers. These guidelines were prepared for the Government of Uganda’s Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development by Development Pathways, through technical support provided by FSD Uganda.
The Government of Uganda’s Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD) is implementing the Social Assistance Grants for Empowerment (SAGE) Scheme under the Expanding Social Protection (ESP) Programme. One of the main components of the programme is the delivery of the Senior Citizens’ Grant (SCG) to all elderly persons starting at the age of 80 and above, and progressively lowering the age threshold over time to reach all older persons 65 and above.
