The restrictions and measures implemented to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) lengthened the payment and allow to help those who were harmed by the coronavirus pandemic. The Solidarity Income was created by the National Government of Colombia and seeks to help the most vulnerable families in the country since 2020. This social incentive provides a total of $ 160,000 pesos to each of the beneficiaries. This was given in support of the coronavirus health emergency.
The entity in charge of managing these subsidies is the Department of Social Prosperity. This is how they manage and control resources for social programs in Colombia. They also organize the beneficiaries who are part of a targeting system that analyzes databases in Sisbén. In addition, it guarantees that three million families living in poverty, extreme poverty or vulnerability have access to this economic incentive.

It has been determined that the economic benefit will be delivered until December 2021 due to the tax reform bill.
