On February 15, 2009, Mabel at Your Service featured the Department of Interior & Local Government XI Project CURE (Comprehensive & Unified Response to Eliminate Red Tape in LGUs). According to Atty. Erwin M. Enad, the DILG Chief Legal Officer, Project CURE was created to foster citizens’ knowledge, capacities and alliances, to altogether curb Red Tape in LGU’s.

The battle against red tape calls not only for more effective efforts of the government but also for renewal of political will. DILG urges all executive, administrative and legislative domains of the LGUs to participate in General Advocacy Orientation Programs, Capability Building and Citizen’s Feedback (Enforcement) to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of LGUs in the delivery of public good and services to the public through anti-red tape practices, therefore preventing graft and corruption in their respective jurisdiction.

This project is in partnership with the Local Government Academy of the Philippines, Civil Service Commission, Office of the Ombudsman, Local Research Institute, Development Academy of the Philippines and the Presidential Anti Graft Commission. For more information regarding this program, LGUs may contact their DILG Regional Offices or log on to or email through;
