The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) launched the TUPAD #BarangayKo, Bahay Ko (#BKBK) Disinfection/Sanitation Project to support displaced workers in the informal sector. It aims to contribute to poverty reduction and inclusive growth by providing temporary wage employment for displaced workers, underemployed and self-employed workers.

What is the purpose of TUPAD #BarangayKo, Bahay Ko (#BKBK) Disinfection/Sanitation Project? 

Counterpart to the DOLE CAMP financial assistance, it addresses the loss of income of workers in the informal sector affected due to the implementation of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Luzon against the spread of the COVID-19.  

Who are qualified for the DOLE TUPAD #BKBK Project?  

1.) Underemployed — if you are employed at less than full-time or regular jobs 

2.) Self-employed — working as a freelancer or the owner of a business

3.) Those who lost their sources of income/livelihood as a result of the ECQ

Those who are working as transport drivers (jeepney, tricycle, pedicab), street vendors, construction workers, owners of small businesses, occassional workers, house helpers, farmers and fishermen may qualify for the DOLE TUPAD #BKBK Project as long as they meet the requirements needed.

Who are NOT qualified for the TUPAD #BKBK Project?  

— Those who received Php5,000 financial assistance from DOLE CAMP

— Those who received cash assistance from Department of Social Welfare and Development

— Farmers who received cash assistance from Department of Agriculture

— Beneficiaries of Php8,000 and above from their Local Government Unit

— Government employees

The total financial assistance that can be received by each household will be based on the overall aid from the different agencies (LGU, DSWD’s food and non-food assistance, DOLE TUPAD #BKBK), which will be limited to Php5,000 to Php8,000 depending on the maximum limit per region.

  2. panu kami nd kami nakaue sa aning mga kanya kanyang bahay wala po kaming makunan constrution worker po kami ung mga opisyal ng barangay dito namimili lang ng binibigyan ng tulong dapat residente ka dito

  3. Isa po akong sa taxi driver dito sa Cebu.Nawalan po ako ng trabaho dahil sa ECQ na ipinapatupad sa aming rehiyon.Hindi po ako makapunta sa DOLE sa Cebu para magapply sa financial assistance dahil sa ECQ. Sana matulungan nyo po ako.

  4. Good evening po💖 gusto ko lang pong itanong kung totoo ba ang Tulong ng DOLE na’to? Bakit hanggang ngayon po ay wala padin? Opo, sabihin natin na nagpoprocess pero po bakit parang hindi gumagalaw or nag iimprove? Paubos na ang mga kakainin ng mga mamamayan natin, mas lalong naghihirap at kumakalam na ang mga sikmura. Opo, sabihin natin na bakit yung ibang tao ay mahirap pa istayin at home? Kasi kumakalam ang kanilang mga sikmura, hindi nila matitiis na makitang nagugutom ang kanilang pamilya. Kaya sana kung mabasa niyo ito, matauhan kayo na maraming nangangailangan ng tulong pinansyal na galing sa gobyerno kasi doon lang kakapit ang mga Pilipino sa kanilang pang araw-araw ngayong enhance community quarantine. Nagkaroon ako ng kamalayan about dito sa napanood ko sa telebisyon na makakakuha ng ayuda ang mga tao na no work no pay eka nga. At higit pa don ay makakatanggap din dapat ng ayuda ang mga pamilya na walang kakayahang kumita at gipit sa panahong ito, mga vendors, drivers, construction workers, mga nakakalat sa daan at iba pang pamilya o tao na walang kakayahang kumita ng pera para sa kanilang pamilya. SANA SA LALONG MADALING PANAHON AY MAIPAABOT NA NIYO ANG TULONG NA INYONG SINASABI O NG SINASABI NG GOBYERNO NA TULONG MULA SA INYO DAHIL SA INYO NAKAKAPIT ANG MGA TAO NA WALANG KAKAYAHAN AT GIPIT SA PANHONG ITO, SANA MALINAWAN KAYO KAPAG NABASA NIYO ANG KOMENTO KO NA ITO DAHIL MARAMING TAO ANG UMAASA SA SINASABING TULONG MAGMUMULA SA INYO! Ito lang po ang magagawa ko sa aking mga kababayan sa panhon ngayon. SALAMAT PO & GODBLESS #NOTOCOVID19💖
