Toby Tiangco sets asides P32M for Navotas’ cash aid


Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco has earmarked P32 million to give cash assistance to families affected by the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila.

Some 3,407 Navoteño families have received P1,000-P4,000 from the P32-million fund the city reverted from the budget of various offices.

“The P32-million will cover the ECQ ayuda of 10,233 families waitlisted in the Social Amelioration Program. We intend to finish the distribution of the cash aid before the May 15 deadline,” Tiangco said.

Beneficiaries who were unable to claim their cash aid will be given a separate payout schedule.

“The city government will also cover the ECQ ayuda of 2,690 persons with disability and 592 solo parents. The P3.2 million needed for this will be sourced from our Gender and Development Fund,” Tiangco said.
