Duterte promised the agrarian reform beneficiaries who received their CLOAs
during the ceremonial distribution that they would receive fertilizers and support services.
It is also to ensure the package of support services like livelihood training, farm inputs, and technology to ensure the maximum benefits from their CLOA

TFM said the only step needed was the distribution of certificates of land ownership award (Cloas
) to at least 1,000 beneficiaries.
Balenia, who represented agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARB) from Maguindanao's first district, was one of two farmers who received their Cloa
from the President during a ceremonial turnover.
Castriciones said foremost in his directive for the department is to increase issuance of certificates of land ownership award (CLOAs
) and to speed-up giving various support services to farmer-beneficiaries.
Among the biggest properties included in the 30 Negros Occidental landholdings that are already ripe for CLOA
issuance but remained 'parked' at the ROD are the following:
On January 16, 2019, Secretary Jhony Castriciones of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) awarded a CLOA
covering an area of over a hectare each to the three former rebels from Sto Nino, Cagayan through the assistance of the 17th Infantry Battalion and the provincial government of Cagayan held in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan.
