Bukidnon 2nd District Representative Cong. Jonathan Keith T. Flores expressed his fervent support of the Community-Driven Development (CDD) Bill championed by the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS).

CDD is a social development technology the DSWD uses to deliver community-based projects while empowering community members to participate in governance processes.

CDD Institutionalization, through the CDD Bill, will establish the CDD as part of the norm in the development process of a locality, ensuring meaningful participation of community members to address their common needs.

CDD institutionalization will also maximize capacity-building, technical assistance, and resource augmentation in CDD program implementation.

The consolidated Substitute Bill was already approved by the House Committee on Poverty Alleviation, moving on to the Second Hearing.
