Felipe, inspected the project titled "Concreting of Farm-to-Market Road in Brgy. Bambanaba, Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija" under the FY 2021 Local Government Support Fund – Financial Assistance to Local Government Units (LGSF-FALGU) last Tuesday, June 7, 2022.

The aforementioned project, with an allocation of Ten Million Pesos (Php10,000,000.00), is at 97% completion rate. The concreting of the road is intended to benefit not only the residents of Brgy. Bambanaba but also motorists from neighboring barangays, by boosting the local economy through increasing road accessibility and facilitating transport of goods and services. The purpose of the inspection was to ensure that the project was executed according to approved plans and specifications.

The LGSF-FALGU Program aims to make a significant difference in the efforts of LGUs to build and improve local infrastructure in order to provide basic services to their constituents.
