13 LGUs in Cordillera receive P67M Seal of Good Governance Grant

Baguio City, Philippines – With them passing the Seal of Good Local Governance, 13 local government units in the Cordillera were awarded a total amount of P67 million pesos as a financial grant on Tuesday, December 27.

The excellent performance of these LGUs in supporting R.A. No. 11292 or the Seal of Good Local Governance Act qualified them to obtain access to the SGLG Incentive Fund which is meant for development projects.

Under Republic Act No. 11292, the SGLG is part of the DILG's performance oversight function which involves the administration of performance assessment tools, and awards and incentive initiatives for LGUs.

Through the program, the agency recognizes remarkable efforts from LGUs in pursuing the general welfare of their constituency and in enforcing existing laws within their jurisdiction.

Awardees include Pasil, Rizal, and Tabuk City in Kalinga while 10 others are from various provinces in the Cordillera.

In Abra, five municipalities were conferred the grant which include Bucay, Dolores, La Paz, Peñarrubia, San Juan, and Tayum while Conner in Apayao received the same grant from the Department of Interior and Local Government.

Other awardees include Asipulo and Lamut in Ifugao and Bontoc in Mountain Province.

Municipal LGUs who qualified for the said award were given P5 million each while Tabuk City gained P7 million SGLG fund.

As recalled, the Seal of Good Local Governance, or "Pagkilala sa Katapatan at Kahusayan ng Pamahalaang Lokal", is an annual event by DILG meant to recognize deserving provinces, cities, and municipalities compliant with the 10 governance areas.

These governance areas include financial administration; disaster preparedness; social protection and sensitivity; health compliance and responsiveness; sustainable education; business-friendliness and competitiveness; safety, peace and order; environmental management; tourism, heritage development, culture and arts; and youth development.
