In 2013 Indonesia conducted one of the largest ever information interventions in an attempt to further alleviate poverty and as a complement to the Social Protection Card. Drawing upon administrative data and nationally representative surveys, we evaluate the impact of the information campaign on the receipt of assistance from two large social programs: Raskin (rice for the poor) and BLSM (temporary unconditional cash transfers).
