The Department of Budget and Management has released P679.27 Billion as of June 30, 2021 to various implementing agencies to support projects, activities, and programs intended to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Of this, P600.66 Billion has been obligated and about P550.53 Billion has been disbursed based on Financial Accountability Reports submitted by the corresponding agencies and departments. This is equivalent to an 88.4 percent obligation rate and 91.7 percent disbursement rate, respectively.
