Author: DA Communications Group | 7 December 2021

The Department of Agriculture (DA), under the leadership of Agriculture Secretary William Dar, kicked off the distribution of the P5,000 unconditional cash grant to rice farmers of Agusan del Sur under the Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund-Rice Farmers Financial Assistance (RCEF-RFFA) Program on December 7, 2021.

A total of 1,844 rice farmer-beneficiaries from the province will equally share the P9.22 million (M) RFFA, sourced from the excess tariff collected from the imported rice mandated by the Rice Tariffication Law (RTL).

During the distribution ceremony in Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur, Secretary Dar announced that the entire Caraga region will receive P225.40 M cash grant under RFFA.

RFFA, with funding totaling P7.6 billion, seeks to provide support to all smallholder rice farmers of the country tilling two hectares and below, who are registered under the Registry System for Basic Sectors in Agriculture. (Photo by Gian Carlo Luague, DA-AFID)
