Administering Targeted Social Programs in Latin America
Margaret E. Grosh
Price: $ 22

Explains how to target welfare services to get good results at modest cost.
Case studies of 30 social programs from 11 Latin American countries provide valuable lessons about targeting a host of social programs. These services include the delivery of school lunches, food stamps, day care, health care, student aid, cash payments, unemployment assistance, housing mortgages, and food commodities or subsidies.
Valuable information is provided on the administrative costs, requirements, and options for targeting social services. Case by case, the manual shows how the different programs managed to balance service improvements against the expense of targeting to make them cost effective. It also describes the most common targeting methods and identifies which programs used them and why.
