Second tranche of SAP cash grant is now available for 4Ps families in Iloilo and Bacolod City.
A total of 104,027 4Ps households may withdraw their emergency subsidy of P4,650 as top-up to their monthly cash grant of P1,350.
The beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in Iloilo province and cities of Iloilo and Bacolod can now withdraw their second tranche of Social Amelioration Program (SAP) cash grant through their cash cards.
For the second tranche, covered areas include those which were still on Enhanced Community Quarantine for the period May 1 to 15, 2020 based on recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) Resolution as declared in Executive Order 112.
In Region 6, a total of 104,027 4Ps household beneficiaries automatically received their emergency subsidy early today.
Among 4Ps beneficiaries, SAP, as provided under RA 11469 or the Bayanihan to Heal As One Act is given to low-income households.
The first tranche was given last April 3 in the Region.
Each household grantee received an emergency subsidy of P4,650, a top-up on their monthly cash grants for health (P750) and rice subsidy (P600), hence completing the P6,000 SAP package.
For the second tranche, which covers the month of May, again each beneficiary received the same top-up amount in their cash grants for health and rice subsidy.
WATCH: DSWD said that only Iloilo City and Province, Bacolod City are included in SAP 2nd tranche.
The amount that each household receives is based on the prescribed emergency subsidy per region determined from the region’s minimum wage levels as these are close approximations to the amount needed to buy basic food, medicine, and hygiene essentials.
The 4Ps beneficiaries may withdraw it through their Euro Master Visa (EMV) cards or may use them at the grocery stores, supermarkets, and drugstores with Point of Sale (POS) terminal. (via DSWD6)
