Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the distribution of P5,000 unconditional cash assistance in Davao del Norte, the second in a series of nationwide distributions at Panabo City Gymnasium, Davao del Norte on Oct. 23, 2021.

The cash aid will be released through the Intervention Monitoring Card (IMC), which will serve as farmer’s ID and cash card. The IMC is distributed by Squidpay Technology under a partnership with DA.

During the event, the agri chief emphasized that the farmers are the true heroes, which is why DA strives to provide them with the necessary assistance and interventions during the pandemic.

Starting this month, more than 1.5 million Filipino rice farmers tilling a land area measuring two hectares or less will have a share from the P7.61 billion excess tariffs collected from the rice imports as indicated in the Rice Tariffication Law. (Photo by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
