He purposefully allocated the Priority Development Assistance Fund of his office to services that will directly benefit our people such as health services, construction of school buildings, ambulance and patrol cars, IT equipment for public schools, scholarships and educational assistance for bright young Caviteños. He also allocated funds for nutrition programs for children, free technical-vocational courses, and agricultural implements for farmers. Aside from infrastructure support to vital roads, he also facilitated the purchase of land intended for a housing project/relocation site for needy constituents.
