The amount allocated to Ada East as its share of the Common Fund is about 4.3% of the total amount (GH¢ 10,577,817.67) disbursed to all the 16 MMDAs in the Greater Accra Region.

DACF: A Brief History

The DACF was created under Article 252 of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana. The Common Fund Act (Act 455) was passed by Parliament on the 6th of July, 1993 to serve as a development Fund that is intended to ensure equitable development of the various Assemblies in the country.

According to the Act, Parliament is required to make provision for an annual allocation of a minimum of 5% of the total revenue accrued by the nation to be shared for all District Assemblies. This amount is supposed to be paid into the DACF in quarterly installments and it is be shared among all the District Assemblies on the basis of a Formula approved by Parliament. 

The Formula outlines the various factors that are taken into consideration in determining the amount each Assembly receives. These factors include among other things the availability of health and education services, water coverage and tarred road coverage in the respective Districts. Other factors considered also include the performance of the District in generating its own revenue. This according to is captured under the ‘responsive factor’ which rewards MMDAs for improvements in their Internally Generated Funds (IGF) using a base year as the basis.

It is important however to note that, the actual amount that finally goes to each Assembly, depends on the actual national tax revenues collected in the year in question.
