The agency continues to provide information and services amid the pandemic by remaining steadfast to its commitment of empowering the Filipinos through population and development strategies. The regional office ensures uninterrupted rollout and access to modern family planning and AHD services in coordination with local government units. 

Under the BP2 Program Committee of the Caraga Regional Development Council, the special program aims at alternative employment and long-term living options for those going back to their home provinces.
