Two hundred eighteen (218) Free Patent Titles covering an area of 182.60 hectares were distributed to qualified beneficiaries in a simple ceremony held at the Northern Samar Provincial Capitol. The event was spearheaded by DENR’s Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) Northern Samar in cooperation with the Registry of Deeds (ROD) and the local government units (LGUs) of the province.

In his message, DENR Regional Director Leonardo Sibbaluca advised all beneficiaries of the Handog Titulo Program to take care of their land titles. "You may now use it as collateral for loans to start a business or for other important needs. Your title shall also secure ownership over your land. Take good care of it to avoid serious legal problems while reconstituting lost or damaged titles", he said.

Congressman Emil Ong who was present during the event lauded the Handog Titulo Program of the DENR saying, "land titles are the best legacy the beneficiaries can give their loved ones. We thank the DENR and all agencies concerned for this effort."

Mrs. Restituta Vistan, 61 years old, recipient of a Free Patent title said she is grateful and proud that finally she is holding a proof of ownership of the land where her family’s livelihood activities are based. "I've been longing for this title for so long. It's finally here, and I got it for free", she said.

DENR’s Handog Titulo program is aimed to expedite the processing and issuance of public land patents to qualified beneficiaries. It is being implemented consistent with the goals of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) which is to improve the lives of farmers and their families especially those living in the countryside.

The Handog Titulo in Northern Samar was conducted in line with the celebration of the Environment Month and the province’s 51st Founding Anniversary.
