Also included in the E-CLIP are halfway house assistance, Philhealth enrollment, and medical assistance, education assistance, housing assistance, Modified Conditional Cash Transfer, legal assistance, and healing and reconciliation initiatives.” Mesahon said they confirmed the veracity of the information through surveillance.
