Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps)
R.A. 11310 or the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) Act is the law institutionalizing the national poverty reduction strategy: a human capital investment program that provides conditional cash transfer to poor households to improve their health, nutrition and education.
For individuals to be eligible of cash grants, poor and near-poor households must be willing to comply with the conditions on health and education; and meet some criteria.
A beneficiary should have a member of his/her household who is zero to 18 years old or pregnant at the time of registration.
Farmers, fisher folks, homeless families, indigenous peoples, informal settlers, and those in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas are automatically included in the standardized targeting system implemented by the DSWD but will still have to meet the criteria to be eligible for cash grants.
Under section 4, a maximum of 7 years as recipients to cash grants may be given to the beneficiaries, but the NAC may recommend a longer period under exceptional circumstances through issuances of resolutions and guidelines consistent with the adopted or used standardized targeting system.
