A total of 65 barangays in the different towns of Cebu Province received checks as financial assistance from the Cebu Provincial Government on Monday, March 4.
Cebu Gov. Hilario P. Davide III and Vice Gov. Agnes A. Magpale distributed the checks to the barangay captains at the Capitol Dignitaries Hall.
The financial assistance given to the barangay captains was based on the requests of the respective barangays, which were supported with the village councils’ resolutions.
Davide said these were pending financial assistance of last year.
He thanked the barangay officials for their patience in waiting for the release of their cash assistance.
Magpale said that in two weeks’ time, another batch of barangays and local government units will receive their financial assistance from the Capitol.
The funds received by the 65 barangays varied because the financial assistance given were based on the need of their village.
The barangay officials will use the funds for the purchase of dump trucks, multicabs, service vehicles, sound system for the district school, monobloc chairs, senior citizens, chapter uniforms, and closed-circuit television cameras.
The cash assistance will also be used for the 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.
