President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, accompanied by Social Affairs Minister Agus Gumiwang, has a meeting with the Friends of the Family Hope Program at Merdeka Palace, Jakarta, on Thursday (13/12/2018). The Family Hope Program is a social aid program for families to alleviate poverty, improve access to education and health and encourage recipient families to live independently.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The social safety net program to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak in the form of cash aid for the poor, such as through the Family Hope Program (PKH) and the Staple Food Card program, will be transferred to recipients beginning April 2020. Previously, such social assistance was disbursed to recipients every three months.

The fund disbursement system has not changed, namely through members of the Association of State-Owned Banks (Himbara). Himbara members include Bank Mandiri, Bank Rakyat Indonesia, Bank Negara Indonesia and Bank Tabungan Negara.
