KALAHI-CIDSS BARANGAY ROAD. The inauguration of the newly constructed Kalahi-CIDSS Tier 2 -Improvement of 90 Linear-Meter Barangay Road worth Php 1,048,850.00 at Barangay Mt. Diwata, Monkayo, Compostela Valley Province was led by Mayor Ramil Lao Gentugaya together with Barangay Officials headed by Punong Barangay Pedro Jay Samillano Jr., Barangay Sub-Project Management Committee (BSPMC) chair Allan M. Teorima, and other stakeholders and beneficiaries.
For the construction, DSWD granted Php 1,000,000.00 while the municipality provided a Local Counterpart Contribution (LCC) of Php 48,850.00.
This vision was realized through Kalahi-CIDSS or Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services, one of the programs of DSWD that uses the Community Driven Development (CDD) approach to empower local communities to undertake their own development projects by actively and directly partaking in local governance in identifying their community needs as well as taking part of implementing projects that will address these needs. Tier 2 is an LGU-implemented incentive round for well-performing municipalities using the process of Kalahi-CIDSS and funded by foreign exchange gains from Asian Development Bank (ADB) emergency loan.
