Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR)- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) here through its Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program Regional Management Office would like to inform the public that the schedule of release of cash grants in the provinces of Abra and Apayao is yet to be finalized since the procurement of service providers for the said provinces is on process.
With this, the DSWD would like to extend its apologies to the beneficiaries and affected stakeholders. DSWD-CAR Director Janet P. Armas assures those affected that the Department is closely working with the Landbank of the Philippines (LBP) to fast-track the procurement of service providers and that beneficiaries will be immediately notified by Pantawid Pamilya personnel on the schedule of pay-out once available. Armas further guarantees that amount of grants not released due to the incident will be given in full once LBP conduits are available.
It should be noted that the release of Pantawid Pamilya cash grants are done through the Landbank of the Philippines with conduits or service providers engaged as a result of a procurement process.
Meanwhile, pay-out for the provinces of Ifugao and Kalinga for Period 1-3 (6 months) of 2017 are on-going. Beneficiaries from Benguet Province and Mountain Province have aleady received their cash grants.
Again, DSWD-CAR apologizes for the inconveniences that the delay has caused. Queries about the program can be directed to https://www.facebook.com/dswdfocar, (074) 446-59-61 or 0995-3525-131. #DSWD-CAR, SOCIAL MARKETING UNIT, Nerizza Faye G. Villanueva
