Farmers from Vigan City received assistance from the Department of Agriculture thru the Rice Farmer Financial Assistance Program.

Rice Farmer Financial Assistance (RFFA) under Department of Agriculture is a direct cash transfer to qualified rice farmers, primarily as compensation for their projected income loss due to the drop of palay (unhusked rice) price.

Under the RFFA, rice farmers tilling two hectares or less will receive P5,000 in unconditional cash assistance.

The said event was attended by Gov. Jerry Singson represented by Atty Jie-Yannah Maryl Singson, Sangguniang Panlalawigan Officials and City Officials.
