DILG gives P18.98‐B aid to towns in need
by DILG release

More than 97 percent or P18.98 billion of the P19.4B budget for Assistance to Disadvantaged Municipalities (ADM) program has been released to 1,373 municipal governments across the country in 2017.

The funds are being used for local access roads, water system projects, evacuation facilities and water impounding projects nationwide.

The ADM program is lauded for its accomplishments in its aim to contribute to the empowerment of local government units and in making them more responsible and responsive.

“It’s quite a feat for a new program to be on top of its performance and to be on track in its initial year. The ADM scheme of transferring funds to municipal governments equalizes and addresses financial and infrastructure gaps.

Nagkakaroon ng dagdag pondo para sa mga proyektong tumutugon sa mga pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan sa mga munisipalidad,” said Department of the Interior and Local Government Officer-in-Charge  Catalino S. Cuy.

For the first batch, P8.16B was released in March, while P8.17B was released for the second batch in June. The third batch amounting to P779.5 million was downloaded in October, while the fourth batch amounting to P886.3M was released in November.

The last batch amounting to P983.9M is scheduled to be released before the year ends.

ADM Project Management Office reported that the remaining P449.3M for 36 municipalities will no longer be released due to their non-compliance to the ADM requirements, particularly the DILG Seal of Good Financial Housekeeping and the Department of Budget and Management Public Financial Management and adoption of corresponding improvement measures.

Cuy said that ADM is in line with national priorities and is in sync with Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022 goals such as: ensuring people-centered, clean, and efficient governance; ensuring functional service delivery networks; and strengthening linkage in planning investment programming and budgeting.
