Meanwhile, CRS provides the counterpart fund as leverage for salaries and benefits, and leads the generation of support from the LGUs and stakeholders.

CRS also serves as the implementing agency and DAR acts as chair of the Project Steering Committee and the Technical Working Group for LinksFarM . *KBC
