IMUS CITY, Cavite – The local government of Imus in Cavite is set to begin the contactless financial distribution process of its LINGAP assistance and the financial aid from the national government.
Imus City Administrator Emoy Francisco said Saturday that the LGU will launch a portal on April 12, where residents could input how they prefer to receive their assistance, see the status of the distribution and the master lists of the beneficiaries.
Francisco said Imuseños can use electronic cashless platforms or E-wallets to receive the assistance that will be distributed by the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP).
Through the said portal, residents can also bring up their concerns about the distribution process that will be acknowledged and validated by the LGU’s Grievances Committee.
“Hindi na po natin hahayaan na pumila pa ang mga tao. Nakita po natin sa ibang LGUs, ano po ang nangyari? Hindi na rin po natin isusugal ang buhay at kaligtasan ng mga empleyado ng pamahalaang lungsod na magpunta ng bahay-bahay,” Francisco said on a Facebook live.
Imuseños who do not have access to any electronic platforms can go to the DBP partnered remittance center for cash pick-ups.
Meanwhile, last April 9, Imus City already started the distribution of the initial master list to 97 barangays taken from the city’s Comprehensive Barangay Monitoring System (CBMS).
“Binibigyan po sila (barangays) ng karampatang panahon, apat o maging limang araw para po linisin, i-cleanse, i-verify. Pwedeng dagdagan… pwedeng magtanggal nang sa gayon po ay matupad po ang binitawan po na deklarasyon ni mayor [Emmanuel Maliksi] at ng ating lungsod na ang lahat po ay mabibigyan,” Francisco explained.
Moreover, Francisco emphasized: “Sasabihin ko po na kulang po ang ayuda mula sa national… So ayaw ni mayor at nang lungsod na babalik na naman ang mga reklamo na wala na namang natanggap ang ilan sa ating mga kababayan kaya isinabay na ito [LINGAP] to see to it na every family po ay makakatanggap regardless [kung] matanda, bata, mayaman, mahirap, nasa gobyerno, nasa pribado, may trabaho o wala, lahat ‘yan ay mabibigyan.”
Residents who have concerns about the initial master list can contact their respective barangays to get LINGAP forms and for other verifications.
Each barangay has to issue a certificate of correctness and truthfulness before returning the master list to the local government.
The financial assistance in the city is expected to be distributed on April 14 to 20.
