THE Local Government of Pavia had the Monthly Cash Subsidy Payout of its cash assistance program for registered, qualified, and low-income solo parents, benefitting 343 beneficiaries.

Pavia Mayor Luigi Gorriceta, SB Member Rhia Sotomil, Ms. Yvanee C. Gimeno, Regional Focal Person, Solo Parents, DSWD FO VI, Mrs. Luzviminda B. Sanchez, MSWD Officer and Ms. Roselle L. Jardenil, President, Federation of Solo Parents led the payout event at the Pavia Multi-Purpose Gymnasium on Friday, April 12, 2024.

LGU Pavia approved Municipal Ordinance 2023-26 in August 2023, which was amended of Municipal Ordinance 2023-52 adopting Republic Act 11861 or the Expanded Solo Parents Welfare Act of 2022, which encourages local government units to provide a P1,000 monthly subsidy to qualified solo parents.

The law grants additional benefits to solo parents including the means-tested monthly cash subsidy of P1,000 per month per solo parent who is earning the minimum wage and below to be allocated by the concerned city or municipal government under Section 17 (b) (2) (iv) of the local government code, mandating LGUs to provide social welfare programs and projects.

During his speech at the distribution on Friday, Mayor Luigi Gorriceta emphasized how the local government has prioritized the needs of low-income solo parents. Every quarter they will receive P3,000 and will continue every quarter for as long as they remain qualified for the program. This initiative is a testament to the local government’s unwavering support for solo parents who play a crucial role in our society. Mayor Gorriceta believes that by providing financial assistance, we can alleviate some of the challenges they face and empower them to provide better lives for their families.
