This, after the Department of Environment and Natural Resources recently distributed free patent land titles to the identified beneficiaries here.

Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala and Western Visayas DENR Regional Director Jim Sampulna led the distribution of titles in the province.

Provincial head Valentin Talabero of the DENR Capiz disclosed that the distribution of land titles to Capiceños is part of the government’s “Handog Titulo” program for the landless.

Talabero said that the primary thrust of the program is to expedite the processing and issuance of public land patents and deliver full ownership of land titles to the identified landless beneficiaries.

In July last year, more than 700 hectares of public land were distributed to the 1,000 free patent beneficiaries in Capiz who came from the different towns here. (JCM/JBG/PIA6)
