By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize through the Ministry of Human Development, Families, and Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs informed today that the Belize COVID-19 Cash Transfer Program (BCCAT) is scheduled to launch on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

The Ministry noted that the program will provide supplementary short-term emergency cash to 21,500 households that have not qualified for other social assistance schemes.

 Beneficiaries will receive three payments of $300 every two months for a 6-month period.

Sixty thousand BCCAT applications were completed over the last seven months.

Countrywide selections are being conducted and enrolment into the program is being done in 8 phases.

BCCAT beneficiaries will be notified of their successful application and payment dates through an SMS text blast.

The MobilePayz solution developed by Digi will allow beneficiaries to cash out their funds using their mobile phones or through a unique code.

 Beneficiaries will be notified of their payment amount, when and where to collect via text messages.
