Barangay Development Program

Each barangay is provided with 20 million pesos each for their respective projects, for a total of 16.44 billion pesos allocated funding.

The official document supporting the BDP from the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) is 

Local Budget Circular 135.

The funding for these projects is coursed directly from the DBM to the Local Government Units, not handled by the NTF-ELCAC.

With over 1,500 projects already approved and ready for deployment, the BDP and its effects are already being felt in communities all over the Philippines formerly subjugated by the CTG.


The Barangay Development Program plays an immense role in the ending of local communist conflict because of its sole purpose: Good Governance

Through the promotion of sustainable rehabilitation and development in former conflict-stricken areas, the NTF-ELCAC ensures that formerly neglected rural communities are provided with long-standing quality government services.
