Lolos and Lolas Benefit from “Katas ng Vat”


Pursuant to the directive of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is implementing the “Katas ng VAT: Tulong Para Kay Lolo at Lola.” The project comes as an early Christmas gift to eligible Lolos and Lolas in the municipality.


Under this project, each beneficiary is given Five Hundred Pesos (P500.00), a one-time cash subsidy funded through a National Government Allocation from the Oil VAT Collection which aims to augment the resources of poor citizens and to recognize their contribution.


Mayor Arcadio H. Gorriceta spearheaded the activity giving away Five Hundred Pesos (P500.00) each for one hundred ninety (190) beneficiaries. In addition, Mayor Gorriceta also gave each of the 14 barangays, 1 unit of BayanTel Landline Phones for easier access and monitoring.
