LANDBANK reaffirmed its continued support to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in ensuring the timely, safe and efficient disbursement of cash aid under the social protection programs of the National Government.
LANDBANK President and CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo met with DSWD Secretary Erwin T. Tulfo on 22 September 2022, to express the Bank’s full commitment to programs and initiatives implemented for the country’s vulnerable sectors.
From January to August 2022, LANDBANK has released a total of P63.3 billion under the CCT program that benefitted 4.4 million low-income families for their children’s education, basic health needs and daily expenses.
A total of P11.5 billion was also delivered to 3.2 million UCT beneficiaries, as part of the government’s support interventions under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law.
Amid the rising prices of fuel and goods, LANDBANK is also working closely with the DSWD in implementing the Targeted Cash Transfer (TCT) Program to support around 12.4 million vulnerable households belonging to the bottom fifty percent (50%) of Filipino households.
As of end-August 2022, the Bank has disbursed a total of P8.3 billion in cash assistance to 8.3 million household-beneficiaries under the TCT Program.
