Municipalities to get CFA3bn support from government

(Togo First) - The Togolese government will provide XOF3 billion to the 117 municipalities where local elections were held last year. The news was announced on Sept. 7 by the minister of decentralization and local communities, Payadowa Boukpessi, on the sidelines of a workshop for the country’s mayors. 

The monies, which will be allocated through the Fonds d’Appui aux Collectivités Territoriales (Territorial Communities Support Fund or FACT), should be used for community projects, as well as cover operational expenses such as wage arrears and indemnities owed to local officials. 

Out of the three billion announced, two billion will be equally split for investment purposes based on the population size and poverty level of each community targeted.
