Abstract: Gawad Kalinga (literally "to give care") is a community development model that begins at the grassroots level. It is an innovative approach that could be the key to solving some of Philippine society's biggest concerns- poverty and homelessness. This policy brief, which borrows heavily from the study of Habaradas and Aquino (2010), answers the following questions: What are the innovations implemented by Gawad Kalinga to address the problem of urban housing in Metro Manila, and how effective are these innovations?
