DSWD sets release of delayed 4P’S grant next week in Palawan

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, Sept. 24 (PNA) — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Palawan is set to release the delayed government financial grant under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) to its thousands of beneficiaries in the province starting next week.

Gerald Bediores, officer-in-charge of the 4Ps in the province, said Wednesday that the release is for beneficiaries who have not received their grants last March and April, adding that the May and June financial aid are still being processed.

He said that on September 28, beneficiaries from Busuanga and Coron will receive their assistance, while on September 29 those from Aborlan, Agutaya, Culion, Cuyo, Magsaysay, Narra, Roxas, Linapacan and Puerto Princesa City.

On October 5, beneficiaries from Brooke’s Point, Quezon and Sofronio Española will get their aid, and on October 6 those from Dumaran and Taytay.

On October 13, beneficiaries from Araceli and San Vicente; and October 20 from El Nido.

Bediores said that towns that are not on the list will have to wait for their schedules.

“The delay was caused by the change of conduit by the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP),” she said. (PNA)
