The KALAHI-CIDSS is a poverty alleviation program that provides resources to poor rural municipalities for public goods investment and promotes people’s participation in governance.

Mr. Vincent Lusaya, the Municipal Planning and Development Officer (MPDO), introduced the KALAHI-CIDDSS NCDDP Area Coordinating Team assigned in the municipality of Santa Barbara in the daily flag ceremony program of the town.

The team will be assigned in different barangays to see to it that activities according to the community cycle will be followed and will be duly implemented to the best interest of the community.

Santa Barbara will also get 20 facilitators as counterpart to do the leg work in identifying and deciding what kind of project under the KALAHI-CIDSS menu will be implemented.

The development objective of KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP is to have barangays/communities of targeted municipalities become empowered to achieve improved access to services and to participate in more inclusive local planning, budgeting, and implementation.
