Listahanan poor in Marinduque get UCT grants from DSWD

UCT beneficiaries from the towns of Boac and Mogpog line-up to claim grants in Provincial Convention Center.

BOAC, Marinduque- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA and Landbank of the Philippines have disbursed 9.5 million pesos to 3,369 Listahanan poor under the Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) program in this province.

UCT is the tax subsidy provided for under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law to help the poor cushion the adverse economic impact of the law for three years, starting 2018. For this year, beneficiaries will receive P200 per month or P2,400 for one year. In 2019 and 2020, the subsidy will increase to P300 or P3,600 a year.

Listahanan is a government mechanism that identifies who and where the poor are. This database is then used for the identification and selection of potential beneficiaries for various poverty alleviation and social protection programs.

“During the three-day clustered payout in this province, UCT served 814 households in Boac; 609 in Gasan; 413 in Mogpog; 451 in Buenavista; 429 in Torrijos; and 653 in Sta. Cruz,” said DSWD Regional Director Wilma D. Naviamos.

DSWD MIMAROPA has piloted the entire process of UCT implementation from the notification, registration and payout activities in six towns of Marinduque starting August 1 to 18, 2018.  From the 3,890 total target, 611 beneficiaries were not able to claim their cash grants due to various reasons such as transfer of residence, deceased household heads and inconsistencies in the legal documents of identified beneficiaries.

“We are grateful for the unwavering support of the six local government units together with the provincial government thru the Marinduque Governor Carmencita Reyes for the successful UCT pilot program implementation. Through this pilot activities, the department will be able to polish its existing guidelines and craft new policies, directions, and strategies based on the experiences and learnings in the province of Marinduque, Director Naviamos added.

DSWD will set a new schedule of payout for those beneficiaries who have not shown to ensure that cash grants will be disbursed within the prescribed timeline.

The UCT  full implementation process for Listahanan poor households will be conducted simultaneously in the remaining four  MIMAROPA provinces starting this month. ###

DSWD advocates Listahanan data sharing to Marinduque LGUs

(L) LGU officials in Buenavista Marindque (R) Marinduque Provincial Government officials.

BOAC- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA held series of orientation on Data Privacy Act (DPA) as part of the mandatory Listahanan data sharing agreements to local government units (LGUs) in Marinduque.

Listahanan is a government mechanism that identifies who and where the poor are nationwide, where the result of the 2015 nationwide household assessment is available and accessible to social protection stakeholders.

“With the passage of the data privacy act, DSWD established a systematic way of sharing data to safeguard personal and sensitive personal information of households in the Listahanan list,” said Regional Coordinator Ernie H. Jarabejo.

RA 10173 or Data Privacy Act of 2012 protects individual personal information stored in the information and communications systems of government and private sectors. It aims to protect the fundamental human right to privacy while ensuring a free flow of information to promote innovation and growth.

For requests covering personal information e.g. list of names and addresses of Listahanan identified poor, the Memorandum of Agreement between the stakeholder and the DSWD is required, added Jarabejo.

However, for the statistical data request, a Letter to the DSWD enumerating the data needed and its purpose is required.

Also in this act, stakeholders requesting access to the list of poor are required to designate Data Protection Officer who shall plan, implement, and evaluate policies for data privacy and security, Jarabejo concluded.

The DPA orientations were attended by office heads of the Marinduque Provincial Government and Municipal Government of Buenavista.

To date, the local government of Boac has successfully complied with all requirements in the Listahanan data sharing among the six municipalities in Marinduque.

Listahanan completes UCT field validation in MIMAROPA

MALATE, Manila- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has completed field validation of Listahanan-identified poor households for the Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) in Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan or (MIMAROPA) provinces.

From the 93,436 household targets, 92,205 households or 98 percent are validated and verified regionwide.

The UCT household validation spearheaded by DSWD- Listahanan started on the second week of March and was officially completed last week of April 2018.  A total of 22,981 households has been validated in Oriental Mindoro; 17,594 in Occidental Mindoro; 6,319 in Marinduque; 7,777 in Romblon; and 38,103 in Palawan.

The Department has hired 392 validators in MIMAROPA who have administered house-to-house interviews for 45 days.

“From the number of nonvalidated households are those unlocated, transferred to other provinces or regions, vacant, and in some cases no available qualified respondents,” said Listahanan Regional Coordinator Ernie H. Jarabejo.

According to validation guidelines, to qualify as respondents they should be at least 15 years old above, member of the household to be validated, and able to verify the accuracy of the household information or profile.

Jarabejo stressed that hired validators have exhausted all possible means to locate and verify those missing households as not to be left behind before the barangay issues certification attesting cases of unlocated or transferred.

Moreover, the barangay council also issued a certification of completion testifying that validation activity in the area is successfully conducted based on standard protocols.

The UCT validation is a mechanism to identify possible and qualified recipients of cash grants as a government’s mitigating measure on the effect of the new Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law.

“The said validation aims to assess possible recipients of social welfare cash assistance to poor families who are heavily affected by the increasing prices of basic commodities due to the TRAIN law. Priority targets are non-Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino and Social Pension Program households,” added Jarabejo.

Meanwhile, DSWD clarifies that the household validation aims not to delist, select and expand new and current Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program and other program partner-beneficiaries.

As of this writing, all validated forms will be encoded for updating of the household profile.

Listahanan is a government tool to identify who and where the poor are nationwide. ###

MALATE, Manila- The Listahanan of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA will conduct house-to-house validation of some 94,000 potential beneficiaries of the government’s Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) program starting this month regionwide.

Recipients will receive P200.00 per month this year; and P300.00/month in 2019 and 2020.

DSWD Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) and Social Pension program beneficiaries will also receive UCT grants to mitigate the moderate and temporary increases in prices due to the enforcement of the comprehensive tax reform program, added Jarabejo.

Jarabejo also calls target household respondents to provide complete and factual information to ensure accurate results.
