The Assistance to Municipalities program of the national government provides a “catch-up mechanism” to assist municipal governments in increasing citizens’ access to basic facilities and ensures participation of civil society organizations in local governance. Implementation of locally-funded projects contribute to the promotion of participatory governance. Part of the FY 2019 LGSF is the Assistance to Municipalities (AM) Program, which seeks to equitably assist all municipalities in the delivery of basic services by providing financial subsidy to municipalities for the implementation of their priority programs and projects.

The said project is in thrust to improve the farm – to – market roads especially in rural areas where accessibility has been a hindrance to countrywide development. At the same time, these local access road aims to increase connectivity and productivity with emphasis on agriculture and expansion of home and tourism industry. It will also provide a better accessibility to the farmers and other marginal workers in transporting their farm and other products to the market.
