Gov’t to validate poor household list in Oct

Sep. 24, 2015

DAVAO CITY – The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) announced Thursday that the Listahanan validation and finalization phase is already set in October.

“The validation phase will enable the Department to review the preliminary list of poor, non-poor, and near-poor households,” said Director Priscilla N. Razon of DSWD in a statement.

She said the validation “also aims to facilitate identification of wrong entries, inclusion of households not assessed, and integration of changes based on merit towards an accurate and credible final list of poor.”

DSWD will organize a Local Verification Committee (LVC) to resolve complaints and appeals received during the validation period.

Razon said they hired 98 supervisors, 554 enumerators, 166 encoders, and 166 verifiers to implement the validation process.

Region XI had a total of P85,584,333 budget for the recently concluded second round of assessment, employing 2,300 field workers. (
