Nueva Vizcaya PLGU, 15 LGUs get local gov’t support fund

by Ben Moses Ebreo

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya –--The provincial government and its 15 Local Government Units (LGUs) have been chosen by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) as recipients of their Local Government Support Fund (LGSF) as an incentive for their good performance on the delivery of services and management of its resources on local governance.

The P10 million fund subsidized yearly through the LGSF is anchored on DILG’s Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH) for LGUs.

The SGH is in line with the Department’s commitment to aggressively scale up interventions to elevate the practice of governance that values transparency, accountability, participation and performance into an institutionalized status.

It aims to recognize LGUs with good governance performance in internal housekeeping particularly on four (4) areas, namely (1) Good Planning; (2) Sound Fiscal Management; (3) Transparency and Accountability; and (4) Valuing of Performance Monitoring. LGUs with the Seal of Good Housekeeping will be qualified for the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) for Local Governments Units being handled by the Bureau of Local Government Development.

The 15 LGUs that are also qualified to receive a fund share from the LGSF are Ambaguio – P.6 million, Aritao – P1 million, Bagabag – P.9 million, Bambang – P1 million, Bayombong – P1 million, Diadi - .7 million, Dupax del Norte – P 1 million, Dupax del Sur – P 1 million, Kasibu – P 1 million, Kayapa – P1 million, Quezon – P .7 million, Sta. Fe – P .9 million, Solano – P 1 million, Villaverde P .5 million and Alfonso Castaneda – P .8 million.

“The fund can be used by the LGUs on rural electrification, flood control, local road development, local economic enterprises, solid waste management, disaster management and other projects that can meet the Millenium Development Goals,” explained lawyer Odilon Pasaraba.

He added that the fund is timely in order to partially patch up the shortage of LGU funds due to the Internal Revenue Allotment(IRA) cut imposed among them in the country this year.

Pasaraba added that LGUs should be encouraged to be creative on their approaches on the delivery of basic services and exhaust their power under the Local Government Code(LGC) of 1991.

The qualification of the provincial government and its 15 LGUs came after passing the DILG’s Local Government Performance Measurement System (LGPMS). (TCB/BME/PIA 2-Nueva Vizcaya)
