The city government of Navotas has received P3.5 million from the Department of the Interior and Local Government for being conferred the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG).

The Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) is a grant given to eligible local government units to support priority development projects.

Mayor Toby Tiangco said the cash grant from DILG will be used to improve one of the roads at Navotaas Homes-1 Tanza.

“We hope this project will help facilitate smooth mobility within the site,” he said.

Projects eligible for PCF are those aligned to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), local economic development, and adaptation to climate change and preparedness for disasters.

Navotas received the SGLG in November 2019 after passing DILG’s four core assessment areas namely Financial Administration, Disaster Preparedness, Social Protection, and Peace and Order.

The city was also conferred the seal in 2015 and 2017. It also receive Bronze and Silver Seals of Good Housekeeping in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
