Makati City Mayor Abby Binay said residents of exclusive subdivisions like Forbes and Dasmariñas Village can also apply for the P5,000 cash aid.

“Mayaman o mahirap.. Tatandaan po natin taxpayer din po sila ang lagi po nating nariring na sinasabing kami nagbabayad ng buwis sa Makati, bakit wala kaming nakukuhang kahit anong ayuda, whether it be malaki o maliit,” Binay said in an interview over DZMM Teleradyo.

“Nung nagbigay ho kami ng relief para doon sa mga nakatira sa condo, binibigay po nila dun sa guard, mga naglilinis ng condo. Marami ho di naman tinatanggap pero para hindi para sa kanila yung pera,” she added.

Binay said the local government will start crediting the aid to resident’s “Makatizen” cards starting May 15, Friday.

Meanwhile, residents who are not yet card holders may apply through the Makati Web Portal, mobile app or forms from barangay officials, the mayor said. “Kaunting pasensya lang po kasi mahirap po iyong dumadagsa sa internet. Nabubulunan po iyong aming portal.”

Binay said at least P2.7 billion were allotted for the program and assured that all qualified residents will be given cash aid.

“Hindi po ito ‘while supplies last’. Hindi ho kailangang mag-unahan tayo na mag-apply dahil in-assess na po namin more or less kung ilan po ang qualified at magkano po ang kailangan namin. Wala hong mauubusan, basta po qualified.”
