Around 600 rice farmers from the town of Paracale have received cash assistance from the Department of Agriculture through the Rice Farmer Financial Assistance (RFFA) program.

Gov. Egay Tallado, Vice Gov. Elect Jonah Pimentel and Office of the Provincial Agriculture Head Engr. Almi Abad led on Thursday afternoon, January 13, 2022 the ceremonial distribution of the financial assistance at the Provincial Agro Sports Center.

The RFFA is an unconditional cash transfer program which aims to provide PHP5,000 financial assistance each to rice farmers tilling 0.5 to two hectares of land in 33 provinces nationwide through their corresponding Office of the Provincial Agriculture.

This is intended to assist rice farmers who are most badly affected by the implementation of the Rice Tariffication Law.
