South Africa’s Child Support Grant : Making an even greater difference during COVID-19

Introduced in 1998 with an initial value of R100, the CSG has become the single biggest programme for alleviating child poverty in South Africa. Take-up of the CSG has increased dramatically over the years and the grant amount is increased slightly each year, more or less keeping pace with overall inflation. As at the end of March 2020, a monthly CSG of R450 was paid to 12,992,678 children aged 0 – 17 years. The value of the CSG increased to R460 per month from the beginning of April 2021.
