Updates to the DSWD’s list of eligible 4Ps beneficiaries
The Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program’s nationwide beneficiary list is now being updated, according to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), which announced this on Friday (4Ps).
According to a statement from the DSWD, data management measures will guarantee that all beneficiaries who are not qualified or eligible for the program are removed from it.
Beneficiaries whose children have previously fulfilled the educational requirements were ordered to be removed from the list by Secretary Erwin Tulfo.
Subject to monitoring and evaluating their compliance with the 4Ps requirements, the Beneficiary Data and Management System will identify the active beneficiaries eligible to receive cash awards.
More than a million beneficiaries who the DSWD has previously classified as not being impoverished are currently being processed for immediate program termination.
The agency’s “Listahanan 3,” which is currently in its final stage, will be affected by the findings of the beneficiaries’ evaluation.
To determine whether a household is judged to be poor or not, the DSWD will also conduct a proxy means test.
The 4Ps is a strategy for reducing poverty that gives extremely poor households payments to enhance their education, health, and nutrition, especially for children ages 0 to 14.
To prepare for the proactive disaster response activities, the DSWD collaborated with Cebu Pacific Airlines through the National Resource and Logistics Management Bureau to provide free transportation of Disaster Assistance Family Access Card (DAFAC) forms to disaster-vulnerable communities.
348,000 DAFAC forms were recently sent by the airline to the airports in Butuan, Iloilo, Zamboanga, Davao, Laguindingan, and General Santos.
The DSWD uses DAFAC forms to track aid distribution to disaster-stricken households and guarantee that all families affected by calamities receive the necessary support.
