The Cash Transfer Programming Methodology Guide

An increasingly popular form of assistance in emergency and development settings, cash transfer programming (CTP) refers to any program where cash (or vouchers for goods or services) is directly provided to program participants. In the right context - where local markets are functioning and able to meet demand - cash can serve as an appropriate and powerful alternative to direct distributions of food and non-food items.

Mercy Corps' CTP Methodology Guide (also available in Français and العربية) provides an overview for teams interested in designing and implementing effective cash transfer programs. Written for an internal audience, the Guide may also be useful for peer agencies.
