Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS): Determining Rightful Beneficiaries of COVID-19 Social Protection Programs

LGUs can utilize programs in order to keep track of the relief operations and to make sure that everyone is given a food supply.

Relief goods purchased from the available Php 9,000,000.00 QRF funds went to households (HHs) with a total monthly income of less than Php 8,800 a month – considered by the LGU as the minimum income sufficient to finance daily HH needs. Data from CBMS allows generation of household profiles that proved valuable in prioritizing beneficiaries of LGU assistance. The readily available data facilitated distribution of relief goods to beneficiaries in dire need of assistance.
