The stipend will start in January 2020, the allowance will be given through ATM, this will form part of the city’s annual budget, Moreno said.
“Kaya ko siya gusto i-ATM kasi 'yung corruption mawawala (I want to release it via ATM to prevent corruption),” he said.
“We really wanted to be efficient in such a way. Also mas kapakipakinabang in terms of ginhawa (It's also more convenient),” he said.

Some of the requirement s for the availment of the privilege under Ordinance No. 8568 are: a student must have a clean disciplinary record to receive the stipend,the student must also be a “bonafide resident and registered voter of the City of Manila, “If the student is not of legal age to be a registered voter, his parent or legal guardian must be a registered voter of the City of Manila,”
Universidad de Manila president Ernesto Maceda commend the move by the mayor, saying that “free education is not enough”
“‘Yung students namin, hindi naman namin sagot ‘yung kanilang nutrition,” he said. “Marami sa kanila pumapasok na walang almusal, hindi makabili ng gamit.”
(For our students, we do not cover their nutrition. Many of them come to school without having any breakfast, they cannot buy school supplies.)

The allowance will be an “incentive” and a “big help,” Maceda said.
