NegOcc gets funding for infra projects in agrarian reform areas

sunstarlogoTHE Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has allocated P1.2 billion worth of infrastructure projects for Negros Occidental identified by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) as one of the recipient provinces of the government’s poverty alleviation program.


DAR Region Western Visayas Director Stephen Leonidas yesterday said that under the anti-poverty program, different national agencies will handle respective regions and provinces.

Agrarian Reform Secretary Virgilio de los Reyes requested to handle the project for Negros Occidental.

Leonidas, who was in Bacolod City on Thursday for the turn-over of P67 million worth of farm facilities and equipment to 26 agrarian reform beneficiary organizations in the province, said that through the plans prepared by different line agencies, the DAR and the provincial government have identified various infrastructure projects like farm-to-market roads and bridges.

He said their agency also identified different local government units (LGUs) as key areas where the poverty alleviation program is best needed, including the cities of San Carlos and Cadiz in the north, and La Carlota, Himamaylan, and Binalbagan and Hinoba-an towns in the south.

“These infrastructure projects are aimed at helping farmer-beneficiaries focus on agrarian reform covered areas in the province,” Leonidas said, adding that these will particularly help them deliver their products effectively and efficiently from respective their farms to different markets.

The DAR official said the budget will come from the Department of Agriculture through its savings fund.

“The proposal was already granted by the DBM which allocated the fund, after we have completed the validation and documentation of the plans submitted by different line agencies,” Leonidas said.

He added that the DAR and the provincial government are waiting for the go-signal to start the project through the Department of Public Works and Highways as the implementing agency.
