4Ps beneficiaries to get cash grants


COTABATO CITY: More than a thousand beneficiaries of the national government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in Sulu and Maguindanao are scheduled to receive their cash grants before the end of November, a top official of Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) said.

BARMM’s Ministry of Social Services and Development (MSSD) head Raissa Jajurie said each beneficiary would receive a P500 monthly health grant, P300 per child enrolled in a daycare center and public elementary school and P500 per child in a public secondary school.

Jajurie said 4Ps recipients from Lanao del Sur and Tawi-Tawi were given their cash grants last October.

She said her office had closely coordinated with the Ministry of Interior and Local Government “to ensure the orderly conduct of the 4Ps payouts in Maguindanao and Sulu.”
