In April, Sassa said everyone who was benefiting from the SRD R350 grant would have to reapply for the crucial support mechanism. 

Sassa has revealed that the new cycle of R350 grant payment will begin in mid-June 2022.

Sassa explained, “Payments for the new cycle of the special Covid-19 SRD  grant (that is for applications received as from April 2022) will be paid from mid-June.”

The reason why beneficiaries had to reapply for the grant was due to a change in the regulatory framework under which the grant is provided to members of the public. 

The qualifying criteria for the R350 grant also changed due to the change in regulatory framework. 

One aspect that has changed is that a beneficiary of the R350 grant must not have an income of any sort of more than R350. The income threshold in previous interactions of the grant was R595.

The grant previously benefited more than 10 million people. However, due to the change in qualifying criteria, some organisations believe that less people may qualify for the grant.
