In the Philippines, poverty alleviation programs concentrate much on the agricultural sector as the backbone of the country’s economy as has always been a concern of every development plan of countries and the focus of development economics on problem of poverty. Agriculture is the main source of livelihood of the majority of the people in Northern Samar. That to pull the rural poor out of poverty and to sustain rapid economic growth, a 5.2 billion yen or 3.4 billion pesos allocation for the Help for Catubig Argricultural Advancement Project (HCAAP) was pushed to target the resolution of such issues as poverty, health, and accessibility. Generally, the objective of this research work is to assess the level of access of the farmer- beneficiaries to the Help for Catubig Agricultural Advancement Project (HCAAP) on the farmer- beneficiaries and to identify the HCAAP- related problems encountered by the respondents. This research work is a descriptive- evaluative study that calls for a quantitative method for data collection and analyses using Qualitative techniques like survey employing interview schedule. Purposive sampling was used in selecting the Barangays covered by the five components of the HCAAP then Stratified sampling was used in selecting the respondent- beneficiaries. First, sample size was computed using the formula of Slovin. From that formula, 280 constituted the sample size. With stratified sampling, the five barangays were equally represented. The collected data were treated using frequency counts, percentages, mean, and ranking. It was found out that the HCAAP components were of moderate Accessibility with irrigation and drainage component got the lowest score of only 2.41 interpreted as low accessibility. It was concluded that the project would deny the beneficiaries of the of the access to the components of the HCAAP if it remained uncompleted. Irrigation system and farm-to-market roads were accessible were found useful only to land owners, few businessmen and not to a mere tenant. Hence, implementing agencies should fast-track the completion of other components especially irrigation component and the government to give more land to the landless in the HCAAP service areas.
