In 2022, Colombia faced a substantial rise in forced displacements, with more than 250,000 people displaced due to armed conflict. To enhance emergency assistance and protection for those recently displaced, Blumont launched the Closing Gaps activity, funded by USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), in October 2022. While many organizations around the world have implemented similar activities around unconditional food assistance and shelter protection, the evidence for these programs has almost exclusively been gathered in the development contexts, not within the humanitarian sector. To address this knowledge gap, Blumont Colombia, in collaboration with Causal Design and funded by Humanitarian Assistance Evidence Cycle (HAEC), designed and implemented an impact evaluation to learn about the impact of the rental support on the self-reliance of internally displaced persons (IDPs).
