The study assessed the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program(4Ps) and its socioeconomic impact to the living standard of the selected members from Tabuk with 140 respondents . The females were in greater number, married , aged 26-33 with a relatively low level of education. The goals and objectives of the Program were moderately and the impact were further assessed as moderate though there was an increase in the enrolment and attendance rate. The incidence of child labor was reduced. Furthermore, the constraints have affected the implementation much seriously. There is a need to device a built-in program that seek to ensure the economic sustainability for a longer time. The members, while receiving financial assistance should be indoctrinated, reoriented and trained to empower themselves through the provision of necessary skills and competencies that could help them earn sustainable income. Likewise, develop some mechanics to conduct proper monitoring and evaluation giving emphasis on the rightful attitude and character of a worthy recipient .. This maybe done by possibly helping them venture into productive activities while enjoying the benefit of the program. As a corrective measure, enforce a policy giving full restriction on careless borrowing by using their cash cards as collateral. If possible, cashcards are released only to the rightful owners during pay-out. As such, they have nothing to use as collateral to abusive moneylenders, hence, helping the member instill discipline on cash handling and also discourage the habitual borrowing of money. Conduct regular monitoring to avoid misuse of financial assistance.
