Use ADM fund w/ prudence – DILG
by DILG release

Interior and Local Government Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Catalino S. Cuy enjoined municipal mayors to responsibly use the local government support fund provided to them through the new program called Assistance to Disadvantaged Municipalities (ADM).

The ADM program aims to equitably assist municipalities in the delivery of basic services by providing financial subsidy for the implementation of priority programs and projects. It has an approved budget allocation of P19.43-billion this year.

To ensure proper implementation of ADM projects in towns, Cuy said that DILG personnel will conduct regular site and spot checks during the construction of projects.

He said municipal governments are also required to submit a status report twice a month to the DILG through its Municipal Local Government Operations Officers.

Cuy said that the DILG will evaluate the submitted reports to check the consistency between the reported work data and the actual accomplishment. These reports will further be posted in the ADM portal at

Cuy said that a Municipal Project Monitoring Committee is presently being established to monitor all projects in the municipality funded by the national government.

“At least half of the members of this sub-committee shall be composed of civil society representatives,” he said.

Cuy said the DILG is also establishing a third party evaluation scheme in partnership with state universities and colleges, accredited civil society organizations, and people’s organizations. It will be composed of parties that are not part of the implementing units and direct beneficiaries of ADM projects.

Cuy  warned that projects which are not implemented in accordance with the provisions of the joint memorandum circular earlier issued by the DILG and the Department of Budget and Management may result in filing of civil, criminal, or administrative cases against local public officials concerned for acts or omissions in relation to the performance of their duties.

In April, Cuy identified the 547 towns that were part of the first batch to receive ADM fund amounting to P8.15B.

“We will soon be announcing the second batch of towns to receive ADM fund,” he said.

The ADM program covers 1,373 municipalities in the country. The fund is released to municipal governments after they obtain a Good Financial Housekeeping mark from the DILG, and comply with both assessment and adoption of measures on Public Financial Management as prescribed by the DBM.

The projects supported by the program include water system projects, evacuation facilities, small water impounding systems, sanitation facilities, and local access roads.
