Final evaluation of the rental support cash grant programme in Haiti

10 August 2015

The 2010 earthquake in Haiti destroyed around 250,000 homes and displaced approximately 1.5 million people, many of whom moved into camps largely concentrated in the capital of Port‐au‐Prince. Rental support cash grant programmes were intended to help the most vulnerable populations – individuals who were relocated to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps. The cash grant programmes were viewed as a potentially viable way to relocate a large number of people and to permanently close the IDP camps.

This document evaluates whether programme beneficiaries have been able to obtain and maintain safe and secure accommodation, and to what extent this is attributable to the rental support cash grant programmes. Also considered in this report is the relevance, efficiency and management of the programmes. The overall purpose of this evaluation is to inform future activities in the post-disaster context of Haiti. To that end, the report contains a series of conclusions and recommendations for future initiatives.
