A people’s organization refers to an association of residents in a barangay or barangays, or persons belonging to a particular group or sector, established to promote public interest and with an identifiable leadership structure and membership. It is often formed among the disadvantaged sectors of society, such as the farmer-peasant, artisanal fisher folk, workers in the formal sector, and migrant workers, among others.

The legislation was reviewed and endorsed by the Committees on Planning, Research and Innovation and People’s Organization Accreditation, chaired by Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya, and on Laws and Rules, chaired by Councilor Edgar S. Cabanlas.
