I. PROJECT BRIEF
The Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive Integrated Delivery of Social Services: Kapangyarihan at Kaunlaran sa Barangay (KALAHI-CIDSS: KKB) is the community-driven flagship development project of the Government of the Philippines which aims to empower communities through their direct participation in community projects that aims to reduce poverty. It aims to provide interventions on asset reforms, human development services, capacity building, and participation on governance.
Thru the Project, it is expected that the poorest communities will be empowered, local governance will be improved, poverty will be alleviated, and transparency will be a way of life.
Beneficiaries of the Project are selected based on the list from the National Statistics and Coordination Board (NSCB) of the poorest provinces. Using the Municipal Poverty Mapping, the poorest 25% of municipalities in a province are selected thru a multi-stakeholders provincial forum.
Once selected, all of the barangays of the chosen municipality are qualified to benefit from the Project Grant. The total amount is derived by computing the number of barangays times the estimated P300, 000.00 allocations per barangay.
