Sustainable Livelihood Program Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) is a capability-building program for poor, vulnerable and marginalized households and communities to help improve their socio- economic conditions through accessing and acquiring necessary assets to engage in and maintain thriving livelihoods. Upholding the value of inclusivity, the Program is open to poor, marginalized, vulnerable and/or disadvantaged households, building upon their strengths and understanding how they can use these to achieve positive livelihood outcomes. Furthermore, it operates in all regions and provinces, treating all municipalities, cities, and barangays as potential areas to implement its various interventions.


Moreover, the Program endeavors to increase the level of participation among participants and harness a deeper sense of ownership of their development. At the same time, the Program recognizes the need to improve the implementation process with a more efficient implementation timeline and further strengthen the social preparation of participants, while ensuring responsible and judicious use of resources. In ensuring that SLP remains relevant to the needs of the communities, the Program implementation process shall be streamlined and simplified. These guidelines aim to provide the DSWD Field Offices (DSWD FOs), being the direct service providers, the specific implementation process for Pantawid households, non-Pantawid households, individual referrals, and walk-in clients.
