The Federal Government’s Rapid Response Register (RRR) for the COVID-19 Cash Transfer Programme has been enumerated and validated across the Federation’s States and Local Governments.
The ongoing Enumeration and Validation exercises across the Federation’s States and LGAs will end on June 5, 2022, according to a special report signed by Apera Iorwa, the National Coordinator of the National Social Safety Net Coordination Office (NASSCO).
In order to benefit from the Cash Transfer Programme, applicants of the Rapid Response Register (RRR) who registered with the State RRR Codes have been asked to engage in the Enumeration and Validation operations in their States and LGAs before the deadline.
Barr. Joy Eneh, the State Coordinator of the Enugu State Operation Coordinator Unit (ENSOCU), speaking in Enugu State, urged residents to take part in the RRR Enumeration and Validation exercise as follows:
Applicants from Local Governments under Enugu East Senatorial Zone particularly Enugu North, Enugu East, Enugu South and Isi-Uzo should visit Stanbic IBTC, Okpara Avenue for the RRR Enumeration and Validation exercise.

The Rapid Response Register (RRR) for COVID-19 Cash Transfer, a World Bank-supported National Social Safety Nets Project, is a Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development intervention to identify and document the urban and semi-urban poor who have lost income streams and thus become poorer as a result of COVID-19’s harsh economic impact.
The Register is being created as part of the existing National Social Safety Nets Project (NASSP) to target persons in this group of non-traditional poor in urban and high-density areas, as well as slums, where the COVID-19 Pandemic has had an economic impact.
Individuals and households who are identified using the COVID-19 Rapid Response Register are rewarded N5,000 for a six-month period.
