7 LGUs re­ceive P132M from DILG

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO— Seven more lo­cal gov­ern­ment units (LGUs) in Pam­panga re­ceived more than P132-mil­lion worth of projects through the As­sis­tance to Dis­ad­van­taged Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties (ADM) Pro­gram of the De­part­ment of the In­te­rior and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment (DILG).

The mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Cand­aba, Ma­galang, Masan­tol, Mex­ico, Po­rac, Sta. Ana, and Sta. Rita were granted funds on June 29, 2017 as sec­ond batch of mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties to re­ceive the fi­nan­cial sub­sidy, along with 11 other LGUs on the first batch of fund re­lease, rang­ing from P15-mil­lion to P24-mil­lion worth of var­i­ous de­vel­op­men­tal projects.

Projects in­cluded are road con­struc­tion of core lo­cal ac­cess road, con­struc­tion of small wa­ter im­pound­ing fa­cil­i­ties, con­struc­tion of evac­u­a­tion fa­cil­i­ties, and pro­vi­sion of potable wa­ter sup­ply.

“Now that all 18 el­i­gi­ble LGUs were pro­vided with funds to aug­ment their so­cio-infra de­vel­op­ment projects, we will now start on closely mon­i­tor­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion thereof. To date, the prov­ince has a good per­for­mance with more than half of project im­ple­men­ta­tion of most of the first batch of LGU ben­e­fi­cia­ries,” DILG Pam­panga Di­rec­tor Myrvi Apos­tol-Fabia said.

The ADM is a fund­ing-sup­port pro­gram of the DILG which grants fi­nan­cial sub­sidy to mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in the amount of P15-mil­lion plus an amount de­ter­mined by the size of pop­u­la­tion of the LGU and its good per­for­mance as de­ter­mined by the DILG in an an­nual as­sess­ment tool.
