CITY GOVERNMENT TO RELEASE ALMOST 12M IN FINANCIAL AID TO ALL ITS BARANGAYS
ALL Taguig families assured of food packs this ECQ
The Taguig City government will release COVID-19 aid to all its barangays to serve as assistance during the enhanced community quarantine. Each barangay will receive P250,000 which they can use to purchase additional food packs for their constituents. This is on top of the regular City Aid being released by the LGU to its barangays.
The barangay assistance is apart from the almost 300,000 relief packs being distributed by the City to its citizens. The food packs contain rice, canned goods, coffee, energy drinks and instant noodles. As of August 8, around 210,000 families have already received their food packs.
“We have allotted for ALL Taguig families, regardless of economic standing to receive food packs from the local government,” Mayor Lino said.
The City Aid and food packs are apart from the cash assistance provided by the national government, for which the City has already made preparations for immediate disbursement.
Mayor Lino also noted that the City will focus on ramping up vaccination and enhancing the city’s testing, contact tracing and hospital capacity to control the transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant.
The Taguig City Government continues to find ways to further protect each Taguigeño as the country continues its fight against COVID-19 and its effects.
