Cash Transfer Programming Toolkit
The Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) Toolkit is a basic guide to cash transfer programming in emergency response and early recovery settings. It aligns with Mercy Corps’ Vision for Change and Program Management Manual and is based upon best practices and practical experience. The CTP Toolkit, however, cannot address every potential situation or programmatic response. Specically, it does not cover the use of cash as a social safety net, in private sector development, or in financial services payments and subsidies. Rather, this Toolkit provides general guidance for CTP, as well as rationales and best practices relevant to the different types of cash transfers.
We anticipate this Toolkit will be used by field and HQ-based team members who are designing and/or implementing CTP in emergency or early recovery settings. It has been written for those with limited or no CTP experience.
