The Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections have raised alarming reports that some candidates are using the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) for their personal interest, with reports of beneficiaries being threatened to be delisted from the program if they will not vote for certain candidates, allegations of extortion, and abuse of power and coercion.{{more}}

The 4Ps is a national government program implemented by the Department of Social Welfare & Development.

The DSWD is responsible in undertaking the major activities of the program namely 1) selection and targeting of areas; 2) enumeration and identification of potential household beneficiaries through the Proxy-Means Test (simple statistical test to measure the socio-economic condition of the household) undertaken by the NHTS; 3) enrollment and monitoring of compliance of the program’s conditionalities; and 4) payment and release of cash grants directly to the 4Ps beneficiaries in coordination with the Land Bank of the Philippines.

The project implementation cost of the 4Ps comes from the national government.

The local government units are partners in the implementation of the program and are specifically responsible in ensuring the constant availability of supply-side requirements on health and education and ensuring the effective implementation of 4Ps in their respective localities based on the program’s policies and guidelines set by the DSWD National Office.

De-listing, replacement, and addition of areas/beneficiaries are solely done by the DSWD national office and not by any individual or party.

To report instances of delisting, text the 4Ps hotline 0918-912-2813 or 0917-381-5555/0917-633-1318. (DSWD)
