2.3 million Quezon City residents receive 'ayuda'

account_balanceQuezon City chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

The Quezon City government has completed the distribution of P2.48 billion financial assistance from the national government on Thursday, five days earlier than the deadline set by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

As of August 28, a total of 2,339,420 individuals or 747,520 families have claimed their P1,000 to P4,000 aid from different distribution centers in the city. However, there are still 89,154 households who have yet to claim their financial aid as they did not appear during their schedule.

Nevertheless, the city has already begun the payout of the unclaimed ayuda to beneficiaries who had missed their payout schedule.

“Sa tulong ng mga city department, barangay, at law enforcers, nai-distribute natin agad ang ayuda para sa mga indigent nating mamamayan,” Mayor Joy Belmonte said.

The mayor also stressed that the city is able to give the cash aid while adhering to minimum health and safety protocols by limiting the number of scheduled beneficiaries per day at each site.

Individuals belonging to low-income families received P1,000 while a household received a maximum of PHP4,000.

According to Social Services Development Department (SSDD) head Fe Macale, days before the ayuda distribution, the city had updated the beneficiary list to remove ineligible and duplicate names.

“Kaya naging mabilis at maayos ang distribution natin ngayon kasi malinis na ‘yung listahan natin.  Inayos natin ito para ma-update ‘yung listahan at mabigyan ang mga residenteng nararapat talagang mabigyan ng ayuda,” Macale explained.

Each payout site was manned by validators from the barangay for the checking of documents, verifiers from SSDD, and paymasters from the City Treasurer’s Office (CTO). The Quezon City Police District, Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS) and Task Force Disiplina were also at each site to ensure the orderly distribution of financial aid.

A grievance and appeals committee was also stationed at each payout site as well as barangay halls to address the complaints of constituents regarding financial aid.

Based on the report of SSDD, 2,782 appeals or complaints were received by grievance committees at the city’s designated payout sites. The barangays meanwhile, are still consolidating all the grievances they received for endorsement to the city.

“Kapag may natitira pang pondo pagkatapos nating maibigay ‘yung ayuda para sa mga unclaimed, residents who filed grievances or complaints will now be subject for payout,” Macale added.

Beneficiaries who have yet to get their ECQ ayuda 2 are advised to monitor the QC government facebook page and website for further announcements.
