by Eden Faith S. Fataner

The Department of Social Welfare and Development through its Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services National Community Driven Development Program has started to operate under the Disaster Response Operations Modality, which seeks to deliver Covid-19 related sub-projects in communities along the areas of health, water and sanitation, and economic recovery.

Aside from the provision of livelihood assistance grant under the Sustainable Livelihood Program and financial assistance through the Social Amelioration Program, the Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP is among the programs of the DSWD which aims to cushion the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic to the communities in the region.

The Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP National Program Management Office pre-identified 14,250 households to be provided with early recovery interventions in the region. 

To achieve this, the Kalahi-CIDDS Additional Financing (KC-AF), a new modality of implementation was launched.

KC-AF is the World Bank-funded bridge financing for Kalahi-CIDSS to support the transition into a scaled up operations. 

Through this, 33 target municipalities with more than 20 percent poverty incidence will be provided with additional funding to implement various programs and services that will help respond to the impact of Covid-19 in the communities.

The targeted municipalities to implement the project will be covered in two batches, which include Bucloc, Danglas, Lagayan, Licuan-Baay, and Malibcong in Abra; Asipulo and Tinoc, Ifugao; Lubuagan, Kalinga; and Natonin and Sadanga, Mountain Province for the first batch.

The second batch includes Lacub, Lagayan, Tineg, and Tubo, Abra; Calanasan, Kabugao, and Pudtol, Apayao; Aguinaldo, Banaue, Hingyon, Hungduan, Kiangan, Lamut, and Mayoyao, Ifugao; Balbalan, Pasil, Pinukpuk, Tanudan, and Tinglayan, Kalinga; and Bauko, Besao, Sagada, and Tadian, Mountain Province.

As part of the agreements and partnership between DSWD and the local government units, participating LGUs must commit a minimum requirement of 20 percent equivalent of the project cost as its local counterpart contribution for sub-project implementation. These may be in the form of cash or in-kind contributions.

Social preparation is ongoing in the municipalities under the first batch where they are starting with the community analysis and assessment of the impact of Covid-19.

Municipal orientations and assessments were conducted to the municipalities under batch two as part of the enrollment activities for the implementation of the program.

The DSWD-Cordillera hopes to receive the complete requirements from the municipalities in soon.
