Even when CTs do not have specific early childhood components, they may play a complementary role to early childhood interventions, increasing households’ ability to positively invest in their children and reap the full benefits of such interventions. Cash transfers may have synergistic impacts with direct early childhood interventions on young children’s development. More research is needed to understand exactly which components work together most effectively to improve key outcomes in young children.
