In order to ease the burden on people affected by COVID-19 pandemic, Jakarta Government through Social Agency has again distributed Non-Cash Social Assistance (BSNT) in form of rice. Jakarta Government will give BSNT to 1,007,379 beneficiary families (KPM). However, as many as 99,743 families of them couldn't be given assistance because there was a potential of duplication with non-cash social assistance recipients in form of rice assistance from Social Ministry. The Social Ministry is currently matching the data. Each families will receive 10 kilograms premium rice.

BSNT will be distributed to residents in five municipalities and Thousand Islands Regency with total 907,616 families

Jakarta Social Agency Head, Premi Lasari said, rice will be distributed on July 29-August 17, 2021. Rice distribution will be carried out by Perumda Pasar Jaya and PT. Food Station Tjipinang Jaya to RT/RW administrators thus assistance can be distributed directly to KPM.

"We have by name by address (BNBA) data for KPM BSNT which today (7/28) has been submitted to providers, namely Pasar Jaya and Food Station, and later it will be distributed to RW levels. Next, RW will check again amount and condition of each packages, then sign Letter or Examination and Handover (BAPST) and distribute it to KPM according to BNBA," she explained as quoted from press release.

Prior to distribution, RT/RW officials have been informed about list of rice assistance recipients. Therefore, RT/RW administrators are expected to inform KPM who has changed their address to come pick up the rice assistance according to schedule and sign a receipt for receiving the assistance. If KPM is difficult to contact, RT/RW administrators can return it to Perumda Pasar Jaya or PT. Food Station Tjipinang Jaya.

BSNT will be distributed to residents in five municipalities and Thousand Islands Regency with total 907,616 families. In detail, there are 50,526 families in Central Jakarta; 181,367 families in North Jakarta; 73,948 families in West Jakarta; 142,029 families in South Jakarta; 457,250 families in East Jakarta; and 2,496 families in Thousand Islands.
