Butuan City (21 November) -- Some 1,065 senior citizens from four (4) municipalities in Agusan del Norte - Las Nieves, Remedios T. Romualdez (RTR), Buenavista and Nasipit received the cash grant from the government's Katas ng Vat program.

DSWD Caraga regional director Mercedita P. Jabagat said the money released to these municipalities amounted to P 532, 500.00. The regional social welfare office has started giving the cash grant on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 and will end until the first release of P 2.5 Million is utilized.

Today, distribution is carried out in Cabadbaran City and Tubay, Jabonga and Kitcharao towns.

Katas ng Vat: Tulong Para Kay Lolo at Lola is a one-time P 500 subsidy to senior citizens funded from the oil Value Added Tax (VAT) collection. (DSWD-13/PIA-Caraga) [top]
