Assuming it's cash aid, don't you think it'll be spent on household supplies and toiletries? How are they going to get their shopping done?

I buy all that on a card. Problem?

These days these funds are disbursed through debit cards that can be used for approved types of items at almost any store. E.g. you can use these debit cards for food and toiletries, but not beer and tobacco.

There's very little reason to allow cash disbursements given the risk of abuse.
