The Constituency Development Fund(CDF) is a form of devolved fund
in Kenya, where resources are sent to the grassroots for the local
people to determine the priority projects to utilise the funds on.
2.5% of the government revenue is to be allocated to this fund
every year. However, since inception in year 2004, the success of
CDF contribution to economic growth has been a subject of
contention. The intention of this study was to establish whether
the large resources allocated to CDF has led to an improvement in
the welfare of Kenyans as measured in terms of economic growth. A
case of Nyeri Town Constituency was used and the various factors
influencing the contribution of CDF to economic growth were
analysed. Descriptive survey design was used. A sample of CDF
projects was selected. Data was collected using various research
instruments and analysed using descriptive statistics. The findings
of the study are presented capturing the strengths and weaknesses
of the CDF model as identified in the study. Notable finding is
that CDF is making some contributions to economic growth. However,
there is still some room for improvement. Recommendations for
improvements are given at the end
