This morning, April 19, 2017, just before Mayor Erwin Caralian proceeded to the Mayor's Forum 2017 for Kalahi-CIDSS Project, a visit was made to Maybank in Bonifacio Global Center to follow-up on our LGU’s offer to buy a property situated in Purok Standard, Brgy. Rosario. This lot, now owned by Maybank, is planned to be distributed to those who are already residing in the said property which they can repay to the LGU at a lesser cost and longer term.
The result of the visit cum meeting ended with positive results as the documents needed for the purchase of said lot has now started between LGU Gumaca and Maybank. God-willing, those residents in the area can now have a lot they can call their own.
This is an effort made to boost LGU Gumaca’s socialized housing program and resettlement of informal settlers in our beloved town.
Today, April 19, 2017, Mayor Erwin Caralian is attending DSWD’s KC-NDDP Quarterly LGU Conference and Mayor’s Forum . Several Municipal Mayors from the different municipalities of Quezon are made to report accomplishments of previous Kalahi projects and their plans for this year implementation of Kalahi projects with Gumaca a recipient of the Tier-2 project implementation.
This Kalahi projects are indeed a big help to our barangays because these entail additional fund support to accomplish their priority projects like water systems, concreting of farm-to-market-roads, construction of health centers, community centers, artificial reefs, spillway among others. More importantly, the communities are empowered because it is in their respective barangays that planning, procurement, implementation, monitoring and maintenance originate and participated by barangay volunteers.
Kalahi CIDSS is a poverty alleviation program of our national government particularly the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Expectedly, DSWD ARDO Annie Mendoza with DRPM Loida Abela are the lead convenors of the gathering where our PSWDO Sonia Leyson and DILG’s Myrna Rocafor and Noemi Pelaez are also present.
