Tanudan beneficiaries assure support for CMGP road project

TANUDAN, Kalinga, Dec. 12 (PIA) -- Beneficiaries of the P198 million Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces (CMGP) road project have been consulted and have given their full support to its implementation.


OIC Provincial director Max Mayer Adong of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) here said local officials and other representatives of the eight barangays of Tanudan who will directly benefit from Dalnacan-Mangali via Taloctoc road concreting project and the municipal local government unit were consulted recently at Seet, Mabaca. Acting Gov. James Edduba and Tanudan Mayor Johnwell Tiggangay were present in said consultation.

Adong said the Dalnacan-Mangali via Taloctoc road project was approved for funding under Pres. Duterte’s CMGP. This is the third rural road project in the province that was approved by the Provincial Development Council and endorsed by the Regional Development Council.

“We hope it will be implemented in the first quarter months in 2018,” Adong said adding the fund will be downloaded to the provincial LGU after all documents are submitted.

Within 10 days upon confirmation of satisfactory compliance with the requirements by a province, the DILG endorses to the Department of Budget and Management the release of funds. But before the DILG endorses, it has to verify that all the Konkreto at Ayos na Lansangan ang Daan Tungo sa Pangkalahatang Kaunlaran (KALSADA) projects released under the FY 2016 GAA have the corresponding Notices to Proceed. The KALSADA is the predecessor of CMGP.

The CMGP program covers all provinces that comply with the Good Financial Housekeeping of the Seal of Good Local Governance of the DILG. Peter A. Balocnit (JDP/PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
