CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – At least two component cities and 10 municipalities in Northern Mindanao are set to receive the P16-million Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), officials said yesterday.

The officials said local government units (LGUs) belonging to the 1st and 3rd Class LGUs in Northern Mindanao will receive their PCF during the “Tapatan” on Disaster Preparedness program on Thursday, June 21.

The components cities that will receive the PCF are Ozamiz City in Misamis Occidental and El Salvador, the newly created city in Misamis Oriental.

The recipient municipalities include Mambajao, Jimenez, Impasugong, Manolo Fortich, Quezon, Kapatagan Tubod, Opol, Balingasag and Don Carlos.

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.

Region 10 DILG Regional Director Atty. Rene K.

He said 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, post-harvest facilities, cold storage facilities and other programs and projects that would enhance local government services.

Burdeos said 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, have complied with the full disclosure policy and have no adverse reports from the Commission on Audit (COA), and have been conferred with the Seal of Good Housekeeping (SGH).
