The Taguig City government started on Wednesday, April 7, the distribution of the national government’s financial assistance to families under the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in the NCR Plus area consisting of the National Capital Region, Laguna, Rizal, Cavite and Bulacan.
According to a circular issued by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Taguig has been allotted a fund of P805.83 million.
The financial aid distribution will start at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Tipas Elementary School (Main) in Brgy. Ligid-Tipas with Reps. Alan Peter and Lani Cayetano attending.
According to the Taguig Public Information Office, the total number of beneficiaries of the financial aid has yet to be determined.
Under the guidelines, the beneficiaries will each receive P1,000 with a maximum of P4,000 per family.
The priority groups are the beneficiaries of the government’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP) under the Bayanihan Act 1; additional beneficiaries under Bayanihan Act 2; SAP wait-listed beneficiaries; and those belonging to vulnerable groups such as low-income individuals living alone, persons with disabilities (PWDs) and solo parents.
