Zambia's Child Grant Program: 36-month Impact Report

This report provides the 36-month follow-up results for the Child Grant cash transfer program impact evaluation. In 2010, the government of the Republic of Zambia through the Ministry of Community Development, Mother and Child Health (MCDMCH) began implementing the Child Grant cash transfer program (CGP) in three districts: Kaputa, Kalabo, and Shongombo. American Institutes for Research (AIR) was contracted by UNICEF Zambia in 2010 to design and implement a randomized controlled trial (RCT) for a 3-year impact evaluation of the program and to conduct the necessary data collection, analysis, and reporting. This report presents findings from the 36-month follow-up study, updating results from the 24-month impact report, including impacts on expenditures, poverty, food security, living conditions, children, and productivity.
