Reg’l development council extends awarding of land ownership to farmers

BUTUAN CITY – During the 4th quarter meeting for calendar year 2023, the Caraga Regional Development Council - Economic Development Committee (RDC - EDC) approved and resolved to extend the project implementation of Support to Parcelization of Lands for Individual Titling (SPLIT) of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) until the year 2026.

Presided by RDC-EDC co-chairperson, Cristina Hemady Arcillas, the committee convened at the NEDA Conference Room on November 15, as DAR Caraga assistant regional director for operations, Agnes L. Dela Cerna, presented the rationale and advantage for the extension of the project implementation to the committee.

DAR Caraga regional director, Atty. Merlita S. Capinpuyan, conveyed her appreciation and gratitude towards the support from the RDC-EDC stating, “DAR is in full force to effectively complete the implementation of Project SPLIT for the ARBs.” 

Dir. Capinpuyan further said, “The efforts of the current administration of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr., through DAR Secretary Conrado M. Estrella III, made this possible for Project SPLIT to continue.”

As such, with this extension of the project, thousands of farmer beneficiaries still stand to benefit from Project SPLIT, as their lives will continue to change for the better. (Christian Lafuente, DAR Caraga/PIA Caraga)
