Yap governor announces tighter control of funds

Yap Gov Henry Falan

Colonia, Yap — Infrastructure projects and social programs in Yap will be reviewed by the national government to determine their eligibility for funding, according to Yap Gov. Henry Falan.

Falan issued a memorandum titled “Policy and Directive on all Requests for CFSM, State and ODA Funds’ sent to all Yap state government departments, offices and agency heads.

The memo, dated March 6, stated that the state leadership supports the Yap State Executive Branch’s request for the Yap Congressional Delegation not to appropriate funds for infrastructure development projects and social programs unless the project proposals are reviewed by the executive branch and relevant offices to determine that they are in line with the state’s priority projects and programs as contained in the master plan.
