Documentary Requirements:

Under JOINT MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. 1 SERIES OF 2020 Section 8.1. Unless otherwise specifically stated in this JMC, the following are the specific documentary requirements to avail of the social amelioration programs:

NOTE: All barangays are hereby mandated to facilitate the issuance of the barangay clearance, free of charge, for the applicable beneficiaries as stated above.

Emergency Subsidy Program (ESP)

Emergency Subsidy Program (ESP) – A social amelioration program to provide cash or non-cash subsidy to eighteen (18) million household beneficiaries, as defined in this JMC, in the amount of at least Five Thousand Pesos (PhP 5,000.00) to a maximum of Eight Thousand Pesos (PhP 8,000.00) per month for two (2) months, for basic food, medicine, and toiletries.

The ESP shall be provided by the national government, through various National and Local Government social amelioration programs, computed based on the prevailing regional minimum wage rates, and taking into account the subsidy amount given under the DSWD’s Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program and the rice subsidy program, estimated at an average of PhP 2,150.00 per month per family. In this regard, the National Government will augment the CCT and rice subsidy in order to reach the applicable emergency subsidy amount.

In accordance with RA 11469, the ESP shall be implemented for two (2) months covering the months of April and May, 2020. The Emergency Subsidy shall be distributed through any of the programs enumerated in Section 7 so long as the total amount from various social amelioration programs does not exceed the prescribed thresholds as defined in this JMC.
