Here is the list of cash subsidy for each household per region under the ‘Bayanihan to Heal As One Act’.
The below information was shared on Tuesday by Albay Representative Joey Salceda who is also the chairperson of the House Ways and Means Committee.
According to the tweet posted by Erwin Colcol of GMA News, each household in the National Capital Region will receive financial assistance of 8,000 pesos where the basis of it is from the 537 pesos minimum wage in the said region.
The other remaining regions will receive an amount that ranges from 5,000 pesos to 6,500 pesos.
“The quick rollout of the emergency subsidy program will help us keep families at home. Kapag wala na kasing pera, lalabas talaga ‘yan para makapaghanapbuhay. Or in the worst conditions, be forced to violate the law. We’re definitely not yet in recovery stage but we want to keep society from reaching a stage of desperation for now, while we’re still in survival modem,” Salceda said.
“I would like to thank President Duterte for considering the proposal to expand the coverage to include basic sectors such as tricycle drivers and lactating and pregnant women,” he added.
