News - PCPD Gets DSWD Accreditation

PCPD is now an accredited partner of government to implement its programs and projects and can access public funds in the process.


The accreditation was issued by the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the only government agency charged to authorize civil society organizations to be eligible to carry out partnerships with government and receive public funds.


According to DSWD’s guidelines, PCPD’s accreditation means that it is a “legitimate CSO of good standing.”  


PCPD can be selected by any government agency to be its partner in its programs and projects on advocacy, capacity building, and resource mobilization in all regions of the country. This is valid until 10 February 2019.


DSWD’s accreditation process was put in place to ensure that CSOs are not used as dummies of corrupt government officials to divert public funds for their own personal use.


It took PCPD six months to complete the very stringent accreditation process.
