Calapan’s budget for the coming year amounts to P938.79 million and aims to jumpstart the city’s economy after the lengthy quarantine, Panaligan said in a Facebook post.

The budget would fund essential social programs in health, housing and education to lift people out of poverty and improve their quality of life.

It will also be for infrastructure projects that aim to boost local economic development and generate employment, he said.
