The Peruvian Government has officially approved the payment of an individual, exceptional, and one-time subsidy —through the Yanapay (Help) Peru initiative
— aimed at households in a situation of poverty and extreme poverty, whose income does not exceed S/3,000 (about US$729) per month.
The regulation provides that a S/350 (about US$85) subsidy —in favor of people over the age of 18 who live in households in a situation of poverty and extreme poverty, according to the Household Focalization System (SISFOH)
— has been authorized under exceptionally conditions and for one time only.
The rule also states that the citizens in the abovementioned cases and those on the "National Registry" for COVID-19 measures in the context of the Health Emergency will be beneficiaries of such subsidy, as long as they are not on the private payroll or their income does not exceed S/3,000 (about US$729) per month.
Households with minors
The decree also authorizes the payment of an additional S/350 (about US$85) grant to the beneficiaries listed above, whose household consists of only one adult and at least one minor, according to the "National Registry."
