Send Aid is a special project in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm. It becomes available during Aid Request and Military Aid Request competitions and increases the player's score for the competition by 50 points each time it is completed.
- The special project converts 200 Production into 50 points, or 4 Production/point.
- Gold-producing projects end up converting the same 200 Production to 60 points (after the 30% conversion rate), or 3.3 Production/point.
Gifting the Gold directly has two other advantages. First, Commercial Hub Investment and Harbor Shipping also earn Great Person points ( Great Merchant and Great Admiral points, respectively). Second, you can use any source of Gold rather than tying up a city's Production with a project for another civilization. However, this also has the disadvantage of giving the target Gold to spend, whereas the points from Send Aid are awarded only to the civilization running the project and do not provide the target with any tangible benefit.
Send Aid becomes more efficient with at least two Aid Requests, since the same project earns points for both (i.e. an efficiency of at least 2 Production/point).
