Barangay development enters critical phase as funds under SBDP released

CLAVERIA, Misamis Oriental – The Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental entered into an agreement with the municipalities of Salay, Claveria, and Lagonglong for the Downloading of Support to Barangay Development Program (SBDP) funds at the Provincial Capitol in Cagayan de Oro City on January 31, 2022.

Misamis Oriental and the abovementioned municipalities signed the Memorandum of Agreement pursuant to DBM LBC Circular no. 135, to download the SBDP funds at the municipal level intended for recipient beneficiary barangays of 2021 and finally begin the non-infrastructure projects or livelihood projects identified by these barangays to benefit their communities.

The agreement’s provisions focused on providing livelihood support and assistance to farmers, women, youth, and education sectors, to name a few. The livelihood projects that were intended and identified for them were carefully planned and considered during the DILG’s Retooled Community Support Program (RCSP) in the previous months.

Salay’s LGSF-SBDP funds total Php9,200,000.00; Lagonglong’s LGSF-SBDP funds total Php2,000,000.00; and Claveria’s LGSF-SBDP funds total Php4,125,000.00. All for the beneficiary barangays’ non-infrastructure or livelihood projects.
The province’s responsibilities under the agreement include working closely with the DILG Misamis Oriental provincial office to ensure the effective and efficient implementation and monitoring of the SBDP projects, as well as ensuring that municipalities submit a monthly financial and physical accomplishment report to the provincial government and the DILG MisOr for monitoring and reporting purposes.

Meanwhile, municipalities must follow LGSF-SBDP policies, guidelines, and other relevant government regulations, as well as use the funds received from the provincial government solely for the approved project and submit a monthly progress and accomplishment report.

Gov. Bambi Emano vowed to the best of his ability to ensure the completion and success of these projects before the end of his term, as he considers this initiative critical to improving the people of Misamis Oriental’s standard of living.

One of the witnesses, Lt Col Ricky L Canatoy, Commanding Officer of 58IB, praised the partnership between the Provincial Government and its municipalities, for this initiative, in order to expedite the delivery of much-needed livelihood projects for the beneficiary barangays.

The signing of the Memorandum of Agreement was graced by Hon. Yevgeny Bambi Emano, Provincial Governor, together with Provincial Administrator Atty. Jocelyn Lood-Mateo, PIATF Chief Dr. Jerie P. Calingasan, ProVeT Head Dr. Benjamin Resma, Provincial Planning and Development Coordinator Mr. Stanley Uriarte, the 58IB Commanding Officer Lt. Col. Ricky Canatoy, and DILG Provincial Director Engr.
