To Whom It May Concern,
We understand that the non-profit organization GiveDirectly is planning to implement and study
through a randomized controlled trial the use of long-term unconditional cash transfers to entire
communities in East Africa as a means of addressing extreme poverty. Some have referred to this
type of unified, broadly targeted cash transfer program as a form of "universal basic
income." We are very interested in seeing the results of this study.
The mission of USAID is to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies
to realize their potential. Development Innovation Ventures is an office within USAID that focuses
on exploring better ways to solve big problems in the development space and then scaling those
that work.
In this context, we're excited about seeing the results of this study and believe the planned
research is relevant to a number of social protection and development questions. Those include
but are not limited to whether long-term cash transfers to the poor show similar impacts across a
range of outcomes to short-term cash transfers; how stream payments over time compare in
impact to one-timer or shorter-term cash transfers (different cash modalities); and whether such
a unified, broadly targeted cash program could be a superior way to harmonize disparate and
overlapping cash and in-kind social protection programs.
