NHA to revoke awards of housing beneficiaries offering units for lease

MANILA, Philippines — The National Housing Authority (NHA) has announced that it would revoke the awards given to beneficiaries proven to be renting out awarded units.

During the Senate hearing on Wednesday (June 16), NHA General Manager Marcelino Escalada reported that they have talked to occupants of government housing projects and found that several of them are not actual beneficiaries of the NHA.

Due to this the agency conducted a validation process to determine which occupants are renters or beneficiaries.

Escalda has instructed his personnel to give the housing to beneficiaries who need it, once the occupants are proven to be renters.

“My instruction was to cancel the award because kumikita pa si original awardee your Honor. Our housing project is only P250, P300, P500 per month and they are renting it out at P3,000-4,000 by other persons interested in occupying,” he said.

According to the NHA, there are still 3,800 housing units available for those who wish to apply for housing. AAC (with reports from Rey Pelayo)

A portion of the NHA housing in Pandi, Bulacan captured by the UNTV Drone

 

MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte signed Wednesday, May 16, a joint resolution which authorizes the National Housing Authority (NHA) to award to qualified recipients all unoccupied housing units that the soldiers and police do not want to avail.

The resolution prioritizes  government employees occupying positions with a low salary grade.

The NHA was given six days to draft the guidelines for the proper awarding of the said housing units.

The move is to stop unauthorized occupants from taking over government housing projects like what members of Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (KADAMAY) did in Pandi, Bulacan. —  Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
