MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, November 3 (PIA) – The planned construction of welfare homes for children is now underway following the additional P7M grant from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for the 2014 Seal of Good Local Governance Award.
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) has approved the resolution last month, granting authority to the governor, to enter into and sign a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Interior and Local Governance (DILG) for the release of the performance challenge fund (PCF) subsidy.
The resolution states that the PCF subsidy will fund the welfare homes (Bahay Pag-asa/Boys Town) as one of the identified priority project of the provincial government that needs high-impact capital investment.
The construction covers a duplex type building, 30 standard living quarters, conference room, chapel, kitchen, and comfort rooms.
The PLGU also intends to put in place playground, perimeter fence and a workroom to house equipment for livelihood training workshops.
The construction of the welfare homes will be implemented in three phases, and is currently in the bidding stage, following the required process in implementing government projects. (JCV/PIA)
