This grant was also included in the Bayanihan 2 Rehabilitation Program where families who were affected will be given a living during the pandemic to be used as capital for their business plans.
There is a monitoring team that will go around every barangay to see if they have used the money they have. They collect receipts from expenditure allocated to liquidate their expenses and ensure the money goes back to their business.
Attended the payout and staff sales in the office of Senator Bong Go. His office is the one who conducted the program together with DSWD and because of Mayor Albee Benitez, he was able to distribute here in Bacolod.
