Kenyan counties get Sh1.9 billion in performance-based grants from the World Bank

Counties only access the funds after meeting certain targets.

The monies are expected to improve human resource and performance management, intergovernmental relations as well as civic education and public participation in the counties

Speaking during the launch of the Level II disbursement of the monies, Council of Governors Vice-Chairperson Anne Waiguru said the initiative has helped counties to improve delivery of public services and to strengthen public financial management systems.

Busia County has the lion’s share of the performance-based funds at Sh553 million while Mandera got the least at Sh6 million.

Targets

The funds also target other key areas such as public finance management and the planning, monitoring and evaluation of county development plans.

The institutions involved in the implementation of the plan are the Devolution and Public Service ministries, Treasury, county governments, Auditor-General and Kenya School of Government.
