3. To claim the rice subsidy, the recipient (representing his/her household) is required to present a photocopy of any Identification Card
4. An authorized representative will be allowed to claim the rice subsidy on behalf of the recipient in the master list, provided that the former brings an authorization letter and photocopy of any ID of the latter
5. The recipient or the representative will affix his/her signature in the official form certifying receipt of the rice subsidy
Mayor Remollo said that the objective of the new rice distribution scheme is to ensure that qualified households will receive the assistance in a more orderly manner, avoid mass gathering and prevent transmission of COVID-19.
Every household is advised to wait for the schedule of rice distribution of their barangay.
