In addition, the activities that can be funded by the Technical Assistance and Training Grants are those that involve the identification of water problems which are greatly associated to source, storage, treatment, and water distribution. Apart from that, the program also aims to identify and evaluate problems that are mainly associated with waste disposal problems that are related to waste collection, treatment and disposal.
The Department of Agriculture has stressed out that the funds could not and will not be used for activities such as recruitment of applications, duplication of current service, funding of political agendas, purchasing of real estate or service vehicles, and finally, improvement and renovation of office spaces.
The Department of Agriculture is set to administer funds with an overall maximum budget amounting to $17,000,000.
