SASSA says preference will be given to grant beneficiaries who, for whatever reason, did not receive their grants for April, for example, through fraud or where a temporary disability grant lapsed in March and the beneficiary could not get to a SASSA office to re-apply if they are still unable to work.
The second category is people who have no income whatsoever and who reside at home – not in temporary shelters or other facilities where meals are provided, or clients of existing Community Nutrition Development Centers (CNDC’s).
