This study was conducted to investigate the contribution of projects funded by capital
development grants on socio-economic development in Dodoma region. The main
purpose of the study was to asses the impact of projects funded by capital development
grants on economic development in Dodoma region.
This study used a sample size of 135 respondents (60 local government officials, 3
village chairman and 74 village residents). A cross-sectional survey method was
adopted in order to collect data from various respondents. Data collection was carried
out by the use of interviews and well structured and pre-tested questionnaires. Both

gathered and analyzed by using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and
Microsoft Excel computer programmes in order to get frequencies and percentages.

facilitate effective project implementation and hence socio-economic development in

capital development grant was found to be effectively used in development projects.

health projects and construction projects. However, the limited involvement of
community members in various projects financed by capitation grants from an earlier
stage is still a major challenge facing local government authorities
