Recovery through the Livelihood Assistance Grant (LAG)
The Municipality of Bongabon has implemented the Livelihood Assistance Grant (LAG) for the families/entrepreneurs whose livelihoods suffered because of the pandemic. The 48 qualified beneficiaries received financial assistance worth Php15,000.00.For the poor, vulnerable and marginalized families and communities, the LAG provides the Capability-Building Program.
The LAG is provided in the Joint Memorandum Circular No. 1, issued by various government agencies to provide social amelioration programs (see List of Social Amelioration Programs) intended to mitigate the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 health crisis. This is pursuant to the Bayanihan Heal as One Act (Republic Act No. 11469) and its Implementing Directives.
Mayor Allan Xystus A. Gamilla encourages the beneficiaries to take advantage of these programs, giving them the chance to recover from the pandemic’s adverse impact.
