The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has assured that it will
provide social amelioration measures to families belonging to vulnerable sectors affected
by the enhanced community quarantine as mandated by Republic Act 11469 or the “Bayanihan
to Heal as One Act.” Here’s how you will receive it.
The PHP5,000 to PHP8,000 worth of social amelioration programs is based on the maximum subsidy per region determined from the region’s minimum wage levels as these are close approximations to the amount needed to buy basic food, medicine, and hygiene essentials. It will be given to an eligible family in cash and in-kind by various national government agencies.
