At least 65 barangays in Cebu will finally have funds for their projects after they received financial assistance from the Cebu provincial government.

Governor Hilario Davide III said the assistance had been pending since last year, adding the assistance is based on the requests of the barangays.

Davide and Vice Governor Agnes Magpale distributed the checks to the barangay captains at the Capitol Dignitaries Hall last March 4.

The governor thanked the barangay officials for their patience in waiting for the release of their cash assistance (https://www.cebu.gov.ph/news/capitol-distributes-cash-assistance-to-65-barangays/).

Magpale said another batch of barangays and local government units will receive their financial assistance from the Capitol in the next two weeks.

The provincial government said the funds received by the 65 barangays varied because the financial assistance given were based on the need of their villages.

It said the funds will be used to acquire dump trucks, multicabs, service vehicles, sound system for the district school, monobloc chairs, senior citizens, chapter uniforms, and closed-circuit television cameras.

Other projects funded by the assistance include barangays’ sport activities, seminars and workshops, repair of service vehicles, renovation of barangay hall, socio-cultural activities, implementation of digital archiving, and construction of perimeter fence and fisherfolks’ resthouse/meeting center.
