On July 25, the DSWD together with the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), and the Department of National Defense (DND) signed a joint memorandum circular (JMC) on the implementing guidelines for the distribution of financial assistance to LGUs under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

The target beneficiaries are families who were previous recipients of the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) under Bayanihan 1 and additional beneficiaries of emergency subsidy under Bayanihan 2; individuals belonging to vulnerable groups such as individuals living alone, senior citizens or persons with disability (PWD); and others who have been stranded by reason of employment in the province, city, or municipality under ECQ.

The JMC also emphasized that the target beneficiaries, at the time of the declaration of the ECQ, must be physically residing, either temporarily or permanently, or who are still in the ECQ areas.

LGUs are expected to post on their official websites, social media accounts, and at conspicuous places in the concerned barangays the list of approved beneficiaries, prior to actual distribution.IMT
