Tarlac, Tarlac – A total of 345 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) were given certificates of land ownership awards (CLOAs) by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) on Tuesday at the Bella Plaza here.

According to Agrarian Reform Undersecretary Rosalina Bistoyong, the beneficiaries were awarded with CLOAs that cover 450 hectares of agricultural land in different parts of the province, including Tarlac City.

Bistoyong led the awarding of the CLOAs along with DAR Regional Director Judita Tungol.

Bistoyong assured the beneficiaries of the government’s sustained support through greater farm production and higher income opportunities.

She said that apart from the CLOAs, farmers could expect more support from the government.

Under the various programs and services of the DAR, she said farmers could avail of credit assistance, farm machinery, free agrarian legal advice, and agrarian justice for farmers who have land problems.

Bistoyong also urged the ARBs to make the best use of their newly titled lands by establishing an agrarian reform-based organization through which they could be assisted by the DAR.

“Support services are not given individually. It is important that you join or group yourselves into cooperatives so that you can readily avail of support services from the government,” she said.

Meanwhile, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer 1 Precy Landingin explained to the farmers their rights and obligations as land reform beneficiaries.

For her part, Tarlac City Mayor Cristy Angeles congratulated the farmers and thanked the DAR for helping uplift the lives of the beneficiaries.
