CSAP beneficiaries get certificate of occupancy

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga,  March 13 (PIA) -- Fifty eight families in the city  who received housing units from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) under its Core Shelter Assistance Program (CSAP)  recently got their Certificate of Occupancy.


City Social Welfare and Development Officer Susana Daluping informed the 58 were among the families whose houses were damaged by typhoon Juan sometime in 2010.  The beneficiaries have already occupied the units since 2014 but the Certificate of Occupancy was issued by DSWD only recently.

Under CSAP, DSWD provides P70, 000-worth of construction materials per recipient for the construction of the units.

To augment the assistance, the city-LGU extended P25, 000 per family for the project.

The 3,000 square - meter housing site in Barangay Balong was donated by the city- local government unit.

Mayor Ferdinand B. Tubban expressed appreciation to DSWD for the project and urged the beneficiaries to do their part in building a harmonious community. (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
