The online application for financial help for schooling was addressed by the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
Through a six-week program that will provide the recipients with financial aid for their educational expenses, the Department of Social Welfare and Development aims to help underprivileged students.
The students may receive P1,000 to P4,000, according to DSWD Secretary Erwin Tulfo, according to a report on ABS-CBN News.
The Department of Social Welfare and Development has discontinued the DSWD Educational Cash Assistance online application process.
The government organization claimed that the staff was finding it challenging to evaluate the massive volume of applications that were clogging the system.
The agency allocated P1.5 billion for educational help and stated that depending on the fund, the release may be extended.
According to a report on ABS-CBN News, DSWD stated that the online application would not be reopened in the case that the payout is extended.
The agency will give individuals who cannot access the internet priority when registering for financial assistance.
