Note: This grant was awarded while the Open Philanthropy Project was a partnership between GiveWell and Good Ventures.

Good Ventures, with input from GiveWell, awarded a grant of $300,000 to New Incentives in March 2016 for general operating support. Good Ventures previously made grants to New Incentives in January 2014 and March 2015. New Incentives is a startup organization that aims to increase delivery of conditional cash transfers, an intervention we believe to be supported by strong evidence of effectiveness. We are continuing to support New Incentives in its expansion because we believe that New Incentives, if successful, could become a GiveWell-recommended charity. See GiveWell’s writeup of this grant for more details.
