Daro with P6.2 million IRA share, Junob - P6.4 million, Looc - P4.8 million, Mangnao-Canal - P4.2 million, Motong - P2.9 million, Piapi - P5.8 million, Poblacion 1 (Tinago) - P2.9 million, Poblacion 2 - P2.2 million, Poblacion 3 - P1.4 million, Poblacion 4 - P1.3 million, Poblacion 5 - P1.3 million, Poblacion 6 - P1.4 million, Poblacion 7 - P1.5 million, Poblacion 8 - P1.2 million, Pulantubig - P3.8 million, Tabuc-tubig - P2.5 million, and Talay - P4.7 million.

The IRA shares of the barangays will be budgeted pay the salaries and benefits of officials and employees, fund infrastructure projects, disaster management, and gender and development initiatives.

In order to augment their budgets, most of the barangay captains also seek allocations for their priority projects from the city government, national agencies, congressional districts, and senators.*
