This descriptive research aimed to is to assess the responses of Provincial LGU with the DILG issuance on Covid 19 to aid in the proposal of a multidimensional revitalization plan which the local government of Kalinga may utilize in its continues fight against Covid 19. The assessment of both the implementers and beneficiaries of the two Memorandum Circulars issued by DILG relating to Covid 19 implies that the Provincial Government of Kalinga as the implementer was able to comply at a rate that is acceptable to the beneficiaries. However, the assessment of both types of participants on the Support of LGUs to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries' Organizations (ARBOs) amidst the Covid 19 Pandemic and Community Quarantine Period were not fully complied with or were not properly executed by the implementers. The major problem or challenge encountered by the Provincial Local Government Unit is the lack of localized guideline in the implementation of Covid policies because no assessment in the local setting was made. It is therefore recommended that a Multidimensional Revitalization Plan may be adopted to enhance the effectiveness of the Provincial LGU in its response to Covid 19. The plan includes the following proposals: Increasing Inclusivity in Public Access to Government Information about Covid 19, Enhanced Covid 19 Prevention Strategies, and the Implementation of the Sagip Saka Act in Kalinga.
