Philippines’ Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) Program

Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program

Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program is a human development program of the national government that invests in the health and education of poor households, particularly of children aged 0-18 years old. 

Patterned after the conditional cash transfer scheme implemented in other developing countries, the Pantawid Pamilya provides cash grants to beneficiaries provided that they comply with the set of conditions required by the program. 

On April 17, 2019, the Republic Act No. 11310 or An Act Institutionalizing the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program was signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte making Pantawid Pamilya the national poverty reduction strategy of the government.
