CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, June 19 -- Twelve local government units (LGUs) in Northern Mindanano will receive P16 million from the government’s Performance Challenge Fund (PCF), administered by Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), on the Tapatan on Disaster Preparedness on June 21.

These are two component cities and 10 municipalities, belonging to the 1st to 3rd class LGUs in Region 10, namely the cities of Ozamis and El Salvador and the municipalities of Mambajao, Jimenez, Kapatagan, Tubod, Opol, Balingasag, Don Carlos, Impasugong, Manolo Fortich, and Quezon.

The PCF is a financial incentive awarded to qualified LGUs for passing the Seal on Good Housekeeping (SGH) to jumpstart local development initiatives that are aligned with the national government’s program for the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals, tourism, and economic development, disaster risk reduction and management and solid waste management.

The two cities shall each be eligible to a P3-million PCF subsidy, while each of the 10 municipalities shall be eligible to a P1-million subsidy.

The PCF may be used to finance projects such as school buildings, rural health units, water and sanitation system, local roads and bridges, slaughterhouses, flood control, reforestation, postharvest facilities, cold storage facilities, and other programs and projects that would enhance local government services.

DILG-10 Director Rene K. Burdeos said that all of the 12 LGUs have passed the 2011 second round assessment on good housekeeping in key governance areas of planning, fiscal management, transparency and accountability and valuing performance management, and have complied with the full disclosure policy and have no adverse reports from the Commission on Audit, and have been conferred with the SGH.
