OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Salaries of Other DSWD-ARMM Program Workers

The Department of Social Welfare and Development, in its efforts to pursue transparent and accountable governance, clarifies that only the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) funds for salaries were downloaded by the DSWD National Office to DSWD-ARMM. The funds for the other centrally-managed programs, namely Supplemental Feeding Program, Sustainable Livelihood Program, Social Pension for Indigent Senior Citizens and Recovery and Reintegration Program for Trafficked Persons have not been downloaded and made available to DSWD-ARMM as of today.

As for 4Ps payouts (cash that go directly to beneficiaries), funds coming in from DSWD National are downloaded directly to Landbank of the Philippines (LBP) and go directly to private conduits or merchants identified by LBP for the five provinces (Basilan, Tawi-Tawi, Maguindanao, Sulu and Lanao Del Sur), who in turn distribute it to beneficiaries in the different municipalities and barangays.

DSWD-ARMM continues to lobby with DSWD National to hasten the processing of transfer of funds for its other programs in ARMM.
