CLAIM: Several individuals in a Facebook group claiming to be authorized agents for the “Pambansang Pabahay Program” of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. 




A Facebook group with 28,800 members is filled with posts of several individuals claiming to be part of the “Pambansang Pabahay Program” of the Marcos Jr. administration. The posts include links where members are required to drop their personal information, such as name, age, address, and contact number. 

The housing program does exist, but the posts in the Facebook group are bogus. 

The links in the posts lead to a blog and not to the official website of the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD).

The Marcos Jr. government’s housing program is intended for wage earners and is not entirely free. The lots and units acquired by beneficiaries require the payment of monthly amortization. According to Housing Undersecretary Avelino Tolentino III, the highest estimate for monthly amortization is P6,000 per month.

Anyone who wishes to be part of the program needs to contact their local government units (LGUs), Tolentino said in an interview with CNN Philippines. 

LGUs are responsible for the selection of land, beneficiaries, and estate management. If the LGU has the funds and ability, they will assist in monthly amortization. 

The posts inside the Facebook group are not limited to housing programs. There are also posts offering scholarships, groceries, and financial assistance, supposedly from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). Ada May Sacil
