The Bahamas, Rental Assistance, Post Distribution Monitoring Report 2020
This Post Distribution (PDM) Report presents the findings of the Rental Assistance programme in Grand Bahama implemented by The Bahamas Red Cross Society (BRCS) with support of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The programme sought initially to provide a transitional shelter solution to 235 vulnerable households affected by Hurricane Dorian. Eligible households receive a sum of 700 Bahamian dollars (BSD) for six months. At the start of the programme, BRCS delivered rental payments through cheques which then switched to bank transfers. The programme directly provided the rental grant to the head of the household, and the person was responsible for paying the rent to the landlord/landlady as per the agreement signed between both parties. IFRC extended the rental assistance to 20 extremely vulnerable beneficiaries three additional months.
