DAR awards farmlands to 658 Leyte farmers

sunstarSAN MIGUEL, Leyte -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has distributed Certificates of Land Ownership Awards (CLOAs) to 658 farmers in three towns in Leyte province.

DAR Regional Director Sheila Enciso led the distribution of the 344 CLOAs covering a combined area of 689.6 hectares of farmlands situated in 21 villages in this town and nearby Jaro and Barugo towns.

 

Enciso explained why it took long for DAR to distribute the certificates to agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

According to Enciso, after the release of the titles, DAR needs to validate the CLOAs to check the accuracy of information.

She likewise advised the ARBs not to sell their CLOAs nor convert their farmlands into other uses to ensure food security.

Enciso said that DAR has an additional budget of P288 million for support services.

Her office received instructions from Undersecretary for Support Services Rosalina Bistoyong to submit project proposals for funding on or before Friday.

In relation to this, she directed the DAR Program Beneficiaries Division to discuss with the ARBs in identifying projects that would help increase the farmers’ production and income, and submit project proposals before Friday. (PNA)
