For the year 2017, the Department of Labor and Employment – National Capital Region (DOLE-NCR) CAMANAVA Field Office, National Housing Authority (NHA) and the Caloocan City Public Employment Service Office (PESO) awarded Livelihood grants to six (6) Home Owners Associations in Camarin Residences, Caloocan City.

The almost 500 beneficiaries from Buildings E, F, G, H and I of the resettlement site in Camarin, Caloocan were provided livelihood resources amounting to Three Million Four Hundred Twenty Thousand Pesos (3,420,000.00) to set up their own businesses such as; Frozen Food for Retail, Bigasan, School Supplies, Wholesale Grocery, Lechunan and Basahan Making under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILEEP).

The Convergence Fund for the program was set up by the national government in pursuit of uplifting the living conditions of the relocated families in selected resettlement sites. The Fund was set aside for the establishment of community facilities, livelihood program, and other welfare services allotted for the relocation sites, lodged in the different National Government Agencies (NGAs) like the DOLE.

The Camarin Residence in Caloocan City is among the sites for the convergence of services and programs. Also, the different programs enrolled for funding by the Convergence Fund implemented in partnership with LGUs, particularly the PESO and the community associations in the resettlement sites.

DILEEP is one of the department’s venture to contribute to the government agenda of inclusive growth through massive job generation and poverty reduction.
