Govt Begins an Assessment process for Development Grants

Government has begun an assessment exercise in districts in preparation to begin the process of distributing development grants to districts across the country.

The Inter-ministerial local government performance assessment (LGPA) task force on behalf of the government begins the assessment process today.

The overall objective of the LGPA is to promote effective incentives, behaviour, systems and procedures for local governments’ efficient administration and service delivery.

The exercise will be conducted from October 29th to December 18th and the results will inform the allocation of part of the development grants for the sectors.

The Prime Minister, Ruhakana Rugunda said that the grant will cover Education, Health, Rural, water, microscale irrigation and discretional development equalisation for the 2021/2021 financial year.
