Highlight of the Patent Processing and Issuance activity of the Land Management Sector is the Handog Titulo Program which marks a milestone in the life of ever Farmer Beneficiary.

In Cagayan's westernmost town of Sta. Praxedes, distribution of 50 residential free patents highlighted the annual state of the municipality address (Ulat sa Bayan) delivered by Mayor Esterlina Aguinaldo in September 30, 2011 at the municipal hall.

The recipients came from three barangays, namely: Poblacion, Portabaga and District 2.

Eighty-six farmer-beneficiaries from Bagumbayan, Dupax Del Sur, Nueva Vizcaya received their titles in October 6, 2011.
