7 LGUs receive P132M from DILG
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.
