A social program was a system of providing for the needs of citizenry.

In 2375, moved by Ishka's suggestions, Grand Nagus Zek instituted progressive income taxes on Ferenginar in order to subsidize the new social programs he had begun, which included wage subsidies for the poor, retirement benefits for the elderly, and health care. (DS9: "The Dogs of War")
