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.
