Informal settlers in 2 Quezon City barangays to get P2M aid

April 13, 2019

THE Quezon City government has allotted P2 million for informal settler families (ISFs) in two barangays which will be affected by expansion projects.

City Resolution 7735-2019 has authorized Mayor Herbert Bautista to extend financial aid amounting over P2 million to 419 affected but verified ISFs occupying sites in Brgys. Project 6 and Bagong Pag-asa where new hospital buildings will rise.

These ISFs occupying a portion of the two barangays will be displaced when the construction of a new Philippine Children’s Medical center starts.

According to Bautista, the area is classified as non-residential and considered high risk due to its blighted condition and absence of roads.

“To provide them with something to start with the resettlement site, there is a need for the LGU-QC to allocate and extend financial assistance to the 419 ISFs in the amount of P2,095,000 or an equivalent amount of P5,000 per ISF,” the resolution reads.
