Armm welfare dept resumes 4Ps payout in Kapai, Lanao del Sur

Kapai, Lanao del Sur — The Department of Social Welfare and Development in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DWSD-Armm) has resumed the payout of cash grants to the beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in at least 20 barangays in this town.

A total of 3,276 validated beneficiaries claimed their accumulated cash grants during the payout. Each beneficiary received as much as P30,000, which included the additional P600 monthly rice subsidy that was introduced by the Duterte administration.

DSWD-Armm explained that the payout was delayed for months because of the need to re-validate the beneficiaries as well as other relevant data in the area. The difficulty in generating electric power in this town and intermittent skirmishes, such as clan wars, are some of the reasons for the delay that resulted in the accumulation of grant amounts.

Efficient release of the remaining 2017 grants and the utilization of cash cards to distribute the money to the beneficiaries are some of the future plans identified by the department. These plans would help in the fast and continuous flow of the payout.

The activity was conducted at Barangay Pindolonan and was spearheaded by Armm Regional Vice-Governor and concurrent Social Welfare Secretary Haroun Alrashid A. Lucman, Jr. and DSWD Regional Assistant Secretary on Administrative and Finance Pombaen Karon-Kader.

Aside from provincial grievance officers and regional grievance officers, the local government unit, led by Kapai Mayor Hamza Gaoraki, organized a municipal grievance committee to address issues and queries raised by beneficiaries during the payout. (with reports from bpi armm)
