Up to RM3,100 aid for B40, generating income for the poor

The government is seeking to help the poor, by both proverbially giving them fish to eat while also teaching them to fish.

In unveiling the new Budget 2023, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim said that households earning less than RM2,500 per month can get aid of up to RM2,500 depending on the number of children.

This is part of the latest government direct cash aid programme, now called Rahmah Cash Aid (Sumbangan Tunai Rahmah - STR).

In addition to the RM2,500, Anwar said the poorest STR recipients - as determined by e-Kasih data - will get additional aid worth RM600.
