Under the Guidelines on the Release of the Second Tranche of the Rice Subsidy for FY 2024, the amount of P2,500 will be allotted for all UP faculty members; research, extension and professional staff (REPS); and administrative employees with regular items.

UP contractual, casual, substitute, and temporary employees who have rendered or are expected to render at least three months of active service by the end of June, are also eligible to receive the benefit.

Some employees may also be granted, instead of cash, a minimum of 40 kgs of rice equivalent to P2,500 pesos.

These guidelines were released by the Office of the Vice President for Administration (OVPA) through Memorandum No. ACR 24-68, signed by Vice President Augustus C. Resurreccion.

To facilitate the distribution of the rice subsidy, a full list of eligible employees will be prepared by the Human Resource Development Office of the UP System Administration, the constituent universities, the UP Tacloban College, and the UP Philippine General Hospital.
