Over 116k private workers in Central Luzon benefit from DOLE CAMP


 

City of San Fernando, PAMPANGA, May 4, 2020 - A total of 116,368 private sector workers in Region 3 were provided with P5,000 cash aid from the COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP), the Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office No. III announced Monday.


According to Regional Director Zenaida Angara-Campita, the remaining P150 million allocation of Central Luzon was processed and already disbursed in the last week of April. “Our last budget allocation was released to another 30,000 employees bringing the total beneficiaries of CAMP to 116,368. These worker-beneficiaries come from 5,428 establishments around the region,” Angara-Campita said.


Upon approval, beneficiaries receive a text message from M Lhuillier on how to claim their cash assistance.


Out of the 5,428 establishments, 1,671 establishments with 40,032 affected workers are from Pampanga, while 1,066 establishments which cover 32,129 workers are from Bulacan. 719 establishments with 10,013 workers are from Nueva Ecija; 670 with 12,072 workers from Bataan; 616 with 12,693 from Zambales; 488 with 7,129 workers from Tarlac and 198 establishments covering 2,300 workers from Aurora.


In a statement, DOLE 3 said that it has already utilized all of its remaining funds for CAMP. “We regretfully announce to our clients that the list that we published today is the final list of establishments with approved CAMP applications in Region 3. With the limited resources that we have, we can no longer accommodate the other thousands of applications that we have received,” Campita explained. “We thank all the companies that submitted their CAMP applications for their efforts to help and support their employees in difficult times such as this,” Campita added.


Meanwhile, establishments who are not in the said list are encouraged to apply for assistance under the Small Business Wage Subsidy (SBWS) Program of the Department of Finance (DOF).


As part of the data-sharing agreement with DOF, a list of all applicant-establishments that were not accommodated under CAMP will likewise be submitted to the said agency.


On April 15, 2020, application for CAMP was suspended by DOLE due to depleted funds.
