The Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) is verifying applicants qualified to benefit from the government’s cement and steel initiative in Region Three.
Some 28 applicants from the region, who have been pre-approved under the initiative, are expected to receive the vouchers for their supplies within two weeks.
This was announced by Housing and Water Minister, Collin Croal during the ‘Dream Realised’ housing drive at the Leonora Synthetic Track and Field Facility on Wednesday.
This programme was unveiled by President Irfaan Ali back in July.
Any person who owns land is eligible for the programme but they must have a development plan that has received pre-approval.
Persons constructing homes for $6 million or less are eligible for steel and one sling of cement for the foundation. Homes that cost more than $6 million and up to $25 million will receive two slings of cement.
The government is expected to invest approximately $700 million in the programme by the end of the year.
