The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a GiveWell Incubation Grant of up to $1,897,905 to support its program providing conditional cash transfers (CCTs) for infant vaccination in North West Nigeria. This grant supplements a larger GiveWell Incubation Grant that was made in November 2017 to support New Incentives’ operations during a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of its program. The additional funding will sustain New Incentives’ operations for the duration of the RCT, plus additional time for us to evaluate the results of the RCT and one extra month for New Incentives to plan its wind-down if we decide not to recommend funding for it in the future. From mid-May until our investigation is complete (between mid-July and December 2020), New Incentives will receive monthly disbursements of $253,054, covering its operating expenses for up to 7.5 months in total. GiveWell Incubation Grants are recommended by GiveWell staff, and support the development of potential future top charities.
