Municipal Ordinance No. 6, dated Nov. 8, 2021, to take effect on January 1, 2022, was enacted as a means of improving the well-being of the inhabitants of Burgos, Ilocos Sur who are bed-ridden or blind and those with chronic illness undergoing chemotherapy or dialysis. This will be in the form of financial assistance of PhP 6,000.00 per individual to be distributed at PhP 3,000.00 each semester (June & December).

Mayor Nathaniel D. Escobar and Vice Mayor Riolita R. Balbalan together with Mrs. Roselin A. Atendido and staff personally went house to house to personally deliver the cash incentives to the 50 recipients for the first semester with the objective of relieving some of their expenses for medication or food purposes.
