DSWD reduces subsidy paperwork

If before, documents overwhelm those seeking assistance, now there are fewer requirements needed, based on what was discussed in the courtesy call of Department of Social Welfare and Development Secretary Erwin Tulfo to Speaker Martin Romualdez on Wednesday.

It was discussed in the said meeting the streamlining or the reduction of necessary documents ordered by Tulfo to speed up the process of helping individuals who are in need in the DSWD Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations program.

“Before, they have to present certificates of indigency, referrals from whoever or whatever, but now they just have to prepare a few required documents, for example in educational assistance, they just have to present certificates of enrollment, authorization letter if they can’t go, a valid ID of the person asking for help and the person they asked to supervise,” according to DSWD Assistant Secretary Romel Lopez.
