The DILG Region 3 awarded Performance Challenge Fund worth one (1) Million pesos each to the Municipalities of Pilar and Bagac, Bataan. Both LGUs were rewarded for being recipients of the highly coveted 2012 scaled-up Seal of Good Housekeeping Silver level.
The incentive was given on March 12, 2014 by CDD Chief Martin Porres B. Moral on behalf of RD Florida M. Dijan to the Local Chief Executives of both LGUs, namely: 1) Hon. Mayor Alicia D. Pizarro, Pilar, Bataan and 2) Hon. Mayor Rommel V. Del Rosario.
