The government on Sunday approved a plan by Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon to facilitate the receipt of work allotments for single parent families, people with disabilities and independent workers.

The plan, estimated to cost NIS 130 million, will see an additional 55,000 people eligible for work grants.

The allotments, that were formulated based on research conducted by the Tax Authority and in collaboration with NGO Yedid – The Association for Community Empowerment, are part of a policy to encourage employment and offer support for low-income workers.
