THE Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) said the second tranche of the P500 targeted cash assistance for the poor was already approved.

The cash assistance, which was earlier promised by former President Rodrigo Duterte, was already approved by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).

During the Laging Handa public briefing, DSWD Secretary Erwin Tulfo said that based on information received by their Finance Management Service yesterday, the second tranche of the cash assistance can already be distributed in the next few day.

In the first tranche, the first two months of the financial assistance worth a total of P1,000 were combined and then distributed to the targeted beneficiaries

It can be recalled that former President Duterte promised to give P500 per month to the poorest of Filipinos who were affected by the continued rise in prices of petroleum products.
