Beyond Buzzwords: Transforming Philippine Agriculture!

Launching of RFFAP in Nueva Ecija

Author: DA Communications Group | 24 December 2019

The Department of Agriculture (DA), in partnership with the Land Bank of the Philippines, rolled out the release of P219 million to rice farmers of Nueva Ecija under the Rice Farmers Financial Assistance Program (RFFAP) on December 23, 2019.

During its launch, the RFFAP financial aid was initially awarded to 500 farmers from the municipalities of Cuyapo, Guimba, Science City of Muñoz, Quezon, Talugtog, and Nampicuan.

In the coming days, 43,845 rice farmers from the province will be awarded Land Bank cash cards loaded with P5,000 which they can use to improve production and augment their income.

Aside from the 33 provinces and qualified farmers who will receive the first tranche of the RFFAP, DA will look into awarding the same financial aid to provinces that have constantly partnered with the drive of the government to attain food security and help rice farmers.
