The CDF is an annual amount of US$200,000 allocated in the National Budget for each county to carry out development projects, while the SDF is a contribution by concessionaires in each county as part of their corporate social responsibility.
The CDF and SDF in some cases amount to millions of United States dollars that are applied to development projects across the country.
Brown opined that with the CDF and SDF, schools, hospitals, farm-to-market roads, bridges and other social facilities were constructed in the county, adding “these are some of the legacies that the government will be remembered for.”
Brown, who was speaking during a government retreat on the farm of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in Bomi County recently, noted that there were no development initiatives in the county prior to the introduction of those funds by the president.
He then wondered why some politicians continue to question the development initiatives of the government when both the CDF and SDF are making the difference.
He has, meanwhile, lauded President Sirleaf for the introduction of CDF and SDF.
