The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a GiveWell Incubation Grant of $5,944,203 to New Incentives to support its program offering conditional cash transfers for infant vaccination in North West Nigeria. This grant is the first (and major) tranche of a grant intended to fully support New Incentives’ operations through May 2020, for the duration of a randomized controlled trial of the program. The grant amount may be updated in the future. GiveWell Incubation Grants are recommended by GiveWell staff, and support the development of potential future top charities.

See GiveWell’s page on this grant for more details.
