Sassa Grant R 350 Extended But not for new application

Extending the Covid-19 social relief of distress grant until 2022 would create time … Grant recipients wait in long queues at the Sassa offices.

SASSA’s decision to decline their Covid19 SRD Grants applications lodged in the extension period of 01 November 2020 – 31 January 2021

He hopes SASSA will extend the COVID-19 grant after 31 January and maintain it even when the pandemic is over.
