The development objectives of the Children and Youth Protection Project for Argentina are to: (i) expand coverage of the family allowances programs; and (ii) improve transparency of social protection programs implemented by national administration of social security (ANSES). The additional financing (AF) and restructuring will scale up the project’s activities and support achievement of its development objectives. The resources of the AF will be allocated to component 1 (financing the universal child allowance) for cost-effectiveness reasons. The following changes will be introduced: (i) setting new disbursement-linked indicators (DLI) targets associated with the new funding for component 1, reflecting the faster-than-expected achievements of the project; (ii) adding new and innovative activities to be carried out under sub-component 3.1, financed with savings from the successful implementation of the original loan; (iii) including new indicators to reflect both these new activities and to improve the monitoring of the already existing strategies for expanded coverage; and (iv) adopting the Bank’s new procurement framework
