Members of Parliament must have regular consultations with their constituents to identify and prioritise development issues.. A broad based Constituency Projects Oversight Committee (CPOC) chaired by the Member of Parliament must be established in every constituency to develop the activities/projects arrived at based on these consultations.. CPOC membership comprises Councillors, Constituency Caretakers, and representatives from different interest groups (faith based organisations, CBOs, NGOs, the business sector etc.)Community groups cannot therefore apply directly to the CDF for project funding, but must ensure that their membership partakes in consultations and seek representation on the CPOC.

Related Tele2 eyes converged boost with Com Hem rebrand Tele2 Group revived plans for an extraordinary shareholder dividend as outgoing CEO Anders Nilsson (pictured) reported the group had performed relatively well in Q2 against the backdrop of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.In its results statement, Nilsson praised Tele2’s performance in a quarter which had been “difficult for the sector and society as a whole,” pointing to its launch of consumer 5G services in Sweden and progress in signing customers up to converged services.The operator, however, still booked a drop in service revenue on pandemic-related issues, citing reductions from international roaming, equipment and mobile prepaid sales, along with the suspension of premium sport, which impacted its broadcast offer.Net profit of SEK900 million ($99.3 million) was down SEK1.2 billion year-on-year, though the company noted its Q2 2019 results had been positively impacted by the sale of its operation in Kazakhstan.Revenue adjusted to exclude divested operations fell 2 per cent to SEK6.65 billion.The company’s extraordinary dividend, which will distribute a total of SEK2.4 billion to shareholders, was postponed in April to improve its cash position to help mitigate any issues related to the pandemic.Nilsson noted the plan, and its financial guidance for the year, were being reinstated now it had a “better view of the pandemic impact and a solid plan of mitigations”.Tele2 will hold a shareholder meeting to vote on the issue in September.

Vermont Business Magazine The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Windham & Windsor Housing Trust (WWHT) celebrated National Homeownership Month at Putney resident Dennis Miller’s new home at Locust Hill Mobile Home Park Tuesday. Miller is the first homeowner to purchase an energy efficient modular home through USDA Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program.“Manufactured homes have long offered an affordable housing option for many Vermonters, however older manufactured homes often have high maintenance and operational costs,” said Ted Brady, USDA Rural Development Vermont and New Hampshire State Director. “The energy cost savings of new manufactured and modular homes, combined with USDA’s long-term, low-rate, no-down-payment mortgages, offer existing and potential manufactured housing park residents new financing opportunities.”Miller, a Putney resident employed by the Putney School, purchased a Vermont-made Net Zero Energy Capable VERMOD and placed it in the Locust Hill Mobile Home Park owned by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust. Miller’s purchase, coordinated by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust, was completed with financial support from Champlain Housing Trust, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Efficiency Vermont and USDA Rural Development.USDA Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program allows low income homebuyers to purchase a high-performance modular or manufactured home in a manufactured home park using a 30 to 33-year mortgage at 3 percent. Very low income homebuyers may be eligible for an interest subsidy down to 1 percent. Brady noted that park tenants seeking a mortgage to purchase a new home and site it on a leased manufactured park lot traditionally face short-term, high-interest mortgages.Two models of high-performance homes have been approved for purchase through the pilot program, the Better Homes AHEAD Manufactured Home and the VERMOD modular home. Homeowners in Rural Development-approved parks are eligible for participation in the program. More information on Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program can be found on the Rural Development website or by contacting Jill Chapman at (802) 828-6022 or by email at [email protected](link sends e-mail).Rural Development and Windham & Windsor Housing Trust celebrated Miller’s new home and Homeownership Month during a service project in the Locust Hill Mobile Home Park. Park residents and community members joined staff in cleaning the park and in planting a community garden.The Windham & Windsor Housing Trust has been strengthening the communities of Southeast Vermont through the development and stewardship of permanently affordable housing and through ongoing support and advocacy for its residents since 1987. WWHT now provides 707 affordable apartments throughout Windham and Windsor counties, coaching to families to help them prepare for and navigate the home buying process, and direct loans to homeowners for repairs, energy upgrades and accessibility improvements.

The executive director of Levski Pavel Kolev will have to untie the knot around the parting with the former coach of the “blues” Petar Hubchev. The information was transmitted by Meridian Match.The new owners of Levski Konstantin Papazov and Nasko Sirakov have left the negotiations entirely on the shoulders of the executive director of the club. As it is known, the management of the “blues” announced that Hubchev will not lead the team anymore after the 0: 2 loss to Lokomotiv Plovdiv in the first match of the semifinals of the Bulgarian Cup.However, this separation is not yet a fact, as the former national coach expects to be paid all the remuneration due under his contract. The case before the bosses of Levski is aggravated by the fact that Hubchev signed the contract as a German citizen, which excludes the competence of the domestic labor regulations.
