BISP was provided a grant of US$ 160 million by the USAID as budgetary support for payment of cash benefits to the beneficiaries identified under the new poverty scorecard system. This amount was fully consumed by January, 2012. USAID also commissioned a 3rd party assessment of BISP payment mechanisms. The report shows that 98.7% beneficiaries of BISP received their monthly cash transfers.
