This 2016 report examines the progress that has been made in the National Safety Net Program since its inception.The report’s findings reaffirms that the NSNP cash transfers have made a profound difference in the lives of beneficiary households by improving their welfare and increasing their resilience. As of today, more than 500,000 households are receiving cash transfers on a regular basis, and an additional 275,000 households in Northern Kenya are able to receive cash assistance in the case of extreme weather events. Significantly, the government has taken the lead in the financing of the NSNP, with over 228,271 new households having been enrolled across the programmes and financed by the Government of Kenya in the FY 2015/16. Importantly, the NSNP has increased the efficiency and effectiveness of the cash transfer programs by, for example,establishing management information systems, secure payments, and a functional complaints and grievance mechanism. All of these accomplishments have strengthened the safety net for vulnerable populations in Kenya and improved the welfare of all beneficiary households.
