MIAGAO, Iloilo – A total of P52.4-million worth of community based infrastructure and support projects were implemented in the barangays of the Municipality of Miagao by the KALAHI-CIDSS- NCDDP under the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

The figure was revealed during the Municipal Accountability Reporting and Sustainable Planning Workshop at the JRBB Hall, Thursday, July 11th.  The amount was spent in community driven development projects in particular in achieving service delivery, poverty reduction, and good governance.

These projects include Steel Bridge in Barangay Onop, foot walks in Barangays Saring and Igbita, health center in Barangay Tigmalapad, one building three classroom in Barangay San Jose and seawall in Barangays Guibongan and Baybay Norte. According to the report, these projects were either completed or on-going with funds allocated in 2015.

KALAHI-CIDSS is one of the core poverty alleviation programs of the government that is being implemented by the DSWD.  It uses the community-driven development approach, which enables communities in targeted poor and disaster-affected municipalities to identify their own needs, and collectively implement and manage solutions for them.
