Good day!
I am Richmond Keith Simeon of PUP. I am writing my master's thesis entitled, "A Microsimulation of the Impact of Free Tuition Law to Poverty and Income Inequality Among Philippine Households."
With this, I am asking for your assistance to please furnish a copy of the PRECISE BUDGET APPROPRIATION PER REGION FOR THE SAID LAW for FY 2018-2022.
I already explored the publication in the DBM website but I am confused on what line-item budget would I get the exact amount for FTL.
Im hoping for your favorable action.
Please keep safe!
