NHA to redistribute 2000 housing units in Pandi
The National Housing Authority is set to redistribute around 2,000 units of houses originally intended for police and soldiers in Pandi, Bulacan, to the urban poor, including members of Kadamay.
According to NHA, 480 beneficiaries from the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology and 1,500 members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) already waived ownership of the houses awarded to them.
Susan Nonato, an architect with the NHA and head of the AFP-PNP Housing Project, said they are waiting for the approval of the resolution to redistribute the houses to the new beneficiaries.
When thousands of Kadamay members forcibly occupied idle housing units in Pandi last March, President Rodrigo Duterte granted the houses to the urban poor group.
The NHA then sought a joint resolution from Congress to reaward the houses to poor families.
The joint resolution provides “immediate awarding” of housing units to “other qualified beneficiaries.”
“It was already announced by [Congress] that the resolution will be released. There are already guidelines for implementation once the order is released,” Nonato said.
