Pres. Duterte approves P1,000 cash aid to residents in ECQ areas

Due to a surge in coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, President Duterte has approved the distribution of cash aid to citizens in need in areas under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), with certain places moving to the highest risk categorization.


After Duterte approved the request to place Iloilo City, Iloilo Province, Cagayan de Oro City, and Gingoog City under ECQ from August 1 to 7, 2021, Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque made the news.


The cash assistance would come from the Department of Social Welfare and Development  (DSWD), Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations (AICS) program, Roque stated during a press conference on Thursday .


According to Roque, each person in the affected regions is eligible for a P1,000 stipend, with a maximum of P4,000 per family.


“The President has approved the distribution of P1,000 cash aid to residents in need in areas under the ECQ and this is up to a maximum of four persons per family,” Roque said.


“The funds are being downloaded to the local governments of Iloilo province, Iloilo City, Cagayan De Oro City, and Gingoog City,” he added.


On Wednesday, the government kept the strict quarantine restrictions in several parts of the country next month to stem the surging cases of the Delta coronavirus variant. Four areas were placed under the modified ECQ (MECQ), namely Ilocos Norte, Bataan, Lapu-Lapu City, and Mandaue City.
