The Tax Authority has released NIS 45 million ($11 million) in emergency assistance grants to help 20,000 families and singles who were evacuated from Gaza border communities.

Residents of agricultural communities within seven kilometers of the Gaza Strip were evacuated by the state shortly after Hamas’s October 7 terror attack.

The grants were awarded at NIS 1,000 a person and up to NIS 5,000 per family.
