It is because they will be receiving the first tranche of monthly rice subsidy earlier promised by President Rodrigo Duterte.



A P600 pesos per month grant will be given to 4Ps beneficiaries if they will meet the condition set by the program.

The P600 pesos cash grant will be equivalent to 18-20 kilos of rice base on the current pricing of NFA rice.




The rice subsidy is additional help for 4Ps that are already receiving cash grants from the government.



1. The Health Grant - P500 per household every month or a total of P6,000 every year



2. The Educational Grant - P300 per child every month for ten months or a total of P3,000 every year (a household may register a maximum of three children for the program)

For a household with three children, a household may receive P1,400 every month, or a total of P15,000 every year for five years, from the two types of cash grants given to them.


According to 4Ps National Program Manager Leonardo Reynoso, this rice subsidy will be distributed every two months, along with the usual cash benefits.

Reynoso explained that cash grants for January and February will be given this March.
