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.
