All R350 grant RECEIVERS must do this as soon as possible. The government speaks. See it

KoParticipants in the COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) award will need to reapply for the funds because they will be disbursed under a different law than they were under previously. 

A new set of guidelines has been established for the SASSA R350 grant. 

President Cyril Ramaphosa said in his State of the Nation Address (SONA) in February that the SASSA R350 stipend would be extended for another year, until March 2023. This follows immediately after that. Ramaphosa stated that the assistance would be extended "in order to ensure that no one in his country goes without food." 

SASSA R350 Grant winners are need to reapply; applications will start on April 23. 

The National State of Disaster, which assisted in the payment of the SRD grant, came to an end at some time in 2022. Since President Cyril Ramaphosa stated that the grant will be renewed, the Department of Social Development has been working on establishing regulations for how the fund will be distributed to recipients.

"The Department published regulations for public comment in February 2022 and has now completed the process," the Department stated. "The final steps, such as obtaining the necessary approval and approval from the relevant departments, have now been completed," the Department added. 

You can submit your application between April 23 and May 1. It is necessary to reapply for the SASSA R350 grant since the new legislative framework for the award adds more qualifying and assessment criteria, which means that persons who have previously received assistance must reapply. The Department of Transportation stated that "fortunately, the entire application procedure is done digitally, which allows for speedy access and processing timeframes.

Applications will be accepted from 12:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on April 23. It is possible to create apps on the SASSA SRD website, which can be accessed via In the future, there will be more options for job applicants to submit their applications. Applications for the SASSA R350 award will be reviewed beginning in the month in which they are submitted, and they will be reviewed on a monthly basis thereafter. This means that, starting in April 2022, all applications received in April will be considered for funding consideration.
