Every household in the Philippines to receive Php5,000-Php8,000 dole outs for 2 months

Government is targeting to distribute the cash and kind dole outs to every family in the Philippines for two months starting first week of April.

Interior Undersecretary Epimaco Densing III said the Inter-agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease has approved the Joint Memorandum Circular on Social Amelioration Program. The program outlined the amount of emergency subsidy to be given to the 24.6 million households nationwide which are classified into formal sectors and informal sectors.

The 6.6 million families from the formal sectors — workers who are earning regular monthly wages from the formal sectors — shall be receiving P5,000 per household.

The 18 million families from the informal sectors were sub-divided further into regions. Metro Manila residents will receive the highest emergency subsidy, i.e. P8,000 per month.

Other regions will be allocated the following subsidy, which he said is based on “standard of living” in their respective areas:
• Cordillera Administrative Region: P5,000
• Region 1 – Ilocos Region: P5,500
• Region 2 – Cagayan Valley: P5,500
• Region 3 – Central Luzon: P6,500
• Region 4a – Calabarzon: P6,500
• Region 4b – Mimaropa: P5,000
• Region 5 – Bicol: P5,000
• Region 6 – Western Visayas: P6,000
• Region 7 – Central Visayas: P6,000
• Region 8 – Eastern Visayas: P5,000
• Region 9 – Zamboanga Peninsula: P5,000
• Region 10 – Northern Mindanao: P6,000
• Region 11 – Davao Region: P6,000
• Region 12 – Soccskargen: P5,000
• BARMM: P5,000

The Department of Social and Welfare Development identified informal sectors as the following:
o Senior citizens
o Persons with disabilities
o Pregnant and lactating women
o Solo parents
o Distressed OFWs
o Homeless families
o Indigenous people
o Workers in the informal sectors (tricycle driver, jeepney driver, rice farmers, store owners, magtataho, magbobote)
o Kasambahay
o Construction workers (daily wage earners)

The subsidy will be in mixed form of cash and kind.

Local government officials will distribute the dole outs in kind such as rice and canned goods. They will also help the national government in determining if a family is belongs to which sector — formal or informal.

Families who were also beneficiaries of 4Ps or Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program will be receiving the dole out minus the 4Ps cash they are already getting. For example, if a 4Ps family in Metro Manila is already receiving P2,000, they will only receive the difference of P6,000.

Densing said the national government will rely on government-controlled and controlled corporations (GOCC’s) which will be re-allocating their budget and dividend to help finance the P200-275 billion in the Bayanihan Fund — the off-budget allocation as allowed in the recently enacted “Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.”
