DSWD Caraga to disburse P161.9M for anti-poverty project

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 19 (PIA) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Caraga is expected to disburse a total of P161,968,531.62 in the first two quarters of this year through its anti-poverty program called KALAHI-CIDSS.

The total amount comes from the World Bank loan of the government given to the region amounting to P137,280,487.93 and an additional P24,688,043.69 from the local cash contribution (LCC) of the implementing local government units (LGUs).

According to Regional Project Manager and Assistant Regional Director, Mita G. Lim, the regional office will disburse the amount through tranches in the community accounts of the barangays.

Moreover, the total cash grant will be disbursed to a total of 136 sub-projects of the 15 partner LGUs throughout the region. Two LGUs are implementing KALAHI-CIDSS Additional Financing while 13 LGUs are currently implementing the LGU-led Makamasang Tugon.

These areas are Veruela, Esperanza, La Paz, San Luis, and Sibagat in Agusan del Sur; Carmen and Jabonga in Agusan del Norte; Tagbina, Marihatag, Hinatuan, Bayabas, and San Miguel in Surigao del Sur; and Pilar and Socorro in Surigao del Norte.

After achieving a hundred percent fund disbursement last year, the regional project management office (RPMO) is hoping to do the same in the middle of the year. (Keneath John Bolisay, DSWD-13)
