The Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) on Friday proposed adjusting automatically the cash assistance extended for beneficiaries of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).

In a statement, the state think tank cited a paper, titled “Giving Cash to the Poor: A Study of Pantawid Pamilya Cash Grants Generosity, Frequency and Modality,” in highlighting the need to “establish a principle for adjusting the grant amount” ahead of the six-year review period stipulated under Republic Act 11031, or the “4Ps Act. “
