Sto. Domingo Albay to vie for Listahanan award

LEGAZPI CITY, Dec. 8 (PIA) – The local government of Sto. Domingo, Albay has been nominated as the entry of the Bicol region to the Gawad Listahanan program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

Sto. Domingo Mayor Herbie Aguas said the municipality was nominated for using the Listahanan database in selecting beneficiaries in the implementation of social protection programs in their locality.

“It serves as an arm in crafting more effective and efficient services to the people of Sto. Domingo” Aguas said.

The municipality used the Listahanan database for the implementation of Aid to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) which provides burial, medical, transportation, food and educational assistance. P500.00 has been allocated for this purpose giving priority to the poor as identified at the database.

Aguas said the LGU is firm in the issuance of the Certificate of Indigency especially if it will be used for legal matters of which the Listahanan list of poor households is the primary tool used for such concerns.

The Gawad Listahanan is an award given to Local Government Units (LGU) for providing services and assistance to the Listahanan-identified poor families.

It aims to promote the convergence of all social protection stakeholders on the identified poor to effectively address the different aspects of poverty.

The competition is classified into municipal, city and provincial categories. The winner for each category will receive a plaque and a cash incentive of P50, 000.

The winners will receive the award on January next year in time for the DSWD anniversary.

The sub-committee for Gawad Listahanan of the National Project Management Office has conducted validation visit on November 28-29, 2015 to screen and review the program documents submitted by the LGU and hold random interviews to their beneficiaries. (MAL/SAA/DSWD5-PIA5/Albay)
