CALOOCAN CITY – The Department of Labor and Employment – National Capital Region through its CAMANAVA Field Office (DOLE-NCR CFO) has funneled cash assistance for 193 displaced workers since January 24, 2022.

Said workers can now avail the P5,000 cash aid from the COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP) Bayanihan 3, through partner payment center of DOLE-NCR.

”Masaya po ako dahil first time ko pong makatanggap ng ayuda. Akala ko po impossible dahil sa dami ng nag-aapply. Malaking tulong po ito sa tulad ko na nawalan po ng trabaho,” a beneficiary said.

In its bid to alleviate the bane of affected workers, DOLE-NCR CFO hit 100% accomplishment rate, faster than the expected Processing Cycle Time (PCT) of three days.

“We are just waiting for more applications to come through. Extra effort talaga to evaluate the applications within the PCT, because we also have to work on other obligations sa office,” an evaluator said.
