SGLG therefore, challenge local governments to continue good governance practices while providing better public services.

Thus, the Seal of Good Local Governance symbolizes integrity and good performance of local governments. It is a continuing challenge for provincial, city, and municipal governments to do better today and in the years to come.

The SGLG awardees will receive an incentive fund called Performance Challenge Fund which they can use for the implementation of local development projects. [via Iloilo City PIO]
