Republic Act No. 11310
Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program Act
The Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), Implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), is the national poverty reduction strategy of the government as stated under the Republic Act No. 11310 or “An Act institutionalizing Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps)” which was signed on April 17, 2019.
Patterned after the conditional cash transfer scheme implemented in other developing countries, 4Ps provides cash grants to beneficiaries provided that they comply with the set of conditions required by the program.
To be eligible for cash grants, poor and near-poor or families must be willing to comply the conditions and meet any of the following criteria:
1 0-18 years old.
2 Pregnant at the time of enumeration
Farmers, fisherfolks, homeless families, indigenous peoples, informal settlers and those in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas are automatically included in the standard targeting system in the DSWD but will still have to meet the criteria to be eligible for cash grants.
