NegOr eligible for P5M fund
for ex-NPA halfway houses

MANILA - The Department of the Interior and Local Government announced that Negros Oriental and other eligible local government units may now access P5-million fund each for the construction of half-way houses for former New People's Army rebels, under the Comprehensive Local Integration Program.

This after the DILG issued the guidelines that enumerate the systems and procedures that should be followed by concerned provinces and highly-urbanized cities to access the fund for the construction of a half-way house in accordance with pertinent laws and prescribed accounting rules and regulations.

Covered by the guidelines are the provinces of Kalinga, Mountain Province, Northern Samar, Negros Oriental, Sarangani, Sultan Kudarat, South Cotabato, and North Cotabato.
