Is it true that the government of Saudi Arabia pays money to families in some countries if the daughters in the family wear a hijab?

Islamic groups have sometimes used financial inducement to encourage Muslim women to wear hijab. Some French Muslim families, have reportedly been paid 500 euros per quarter in return for hijab use by their daughters.
