DSWD Breaks Silence Regarding Discrepancy in Pandemic Cash Aid Distribution

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has finally explained the discrepancy in distribution of cash aid during pandemic.

Senator Panfilo Lacson flagged the agency’s explanation regarding the discrepancy in distribution of social amelioration funds during the DSWD’s proposed 2022 budget hearing. The agency claimed that over 717,372 out of 761,259 have received the financial aid.

DSWD said that the accomplishment rate of cash assistance’s distribution is about 94 percent. However, Lacson claimed that the agency distributes around 80 percent of the social amelioration fund.

“So we targeted 761,000 and yet served 717,000, which is 94 percent of our target. There are two components of the Bayanihan 2: number one is the emergency subsidy and the other one is the livelihood assistance grant.” Assistant Secretary Glenda Relova said.

Relova also explained that some families received P15, 000 livelihood assistance due to their business proposal while others received P5, 000 aid for opting to remain on employment track.

The agency’s official said that the department has served more beneficiaries in terms of the livelihood assistant grant.

Several local government units encountered troubles with the distribution of the financial assistance after some citizens filed complaint against them for not receiving cash aid based on the agency’s data, according to Lacson.

Previously, the distribution of pandemic aid becomes one of the most controversial topics online due to the alleged anomaly and discrepancy. Some of our countrymen have also expressed their dismay for failing to receive cash aid last year.
