President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday approved a new special amelioration program for areas under enhanced community quarantine in the NCR Plus bubble — Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, Cavite, and Laguna.
Who will get how much?
In Duterte’s weekly talk to the people, Budget Secretary Wendell Avisado said a total of 22.9 million low-income individuals will receive P1,000 in kind under the dole out program.
Avisado said the Department of Budget and Management would release P22.9 billion to the local government units in the NCR Plus bubble for distribution of the goods.
The benefits will be limited to four per family.
