P5.5B released for resettlement project

PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III has ordered the release of P5.5 billion for the government’s resettlement program that targets informal settlers and residents in high risk areas.
The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) released the fund to the National Housing Authority (NHA), which implements the project that aims to provide better living environment for indigent Filipino families.
“The recent release will allow the NHA to meet the rehousing requirements of families and communities living as informal settlers or currently in high-risk or calamity-stricken areas,” Budget Secretary Florencio Abad said in a statement issued Sunday.
He said President Aquino understands the urgency of relocating at-risk residents especially since the rainy season has begun.
The NHA program will cover the provision of 12,227 house and lot packages, 10,188 housing units, and 16,527 lots to beneficiary families nationwide. The release will be charged against the agency’s Corporate Operating Budget as programmed in fiscal year 2012 General Appropriations Act.
Of the total fund, at least P4.16 billion will go to NHA-administered rehousing activities, of which around P2.7 billion will be used to relocate informal settler families living in high-risk areas in Metro Manila, Rizal, Laguna, Bulacan, and Pampanga. The fund will likewise cover families displaced from areas earmarked for government infrastructure projects.
Since the program is off-city relocation, the government will also provide community facilities such as schools, health and livelihood centers and police outputs in the housing sites.
Socio-economic and other community support programs will also be rolled out, with the entire program involving local government units (LGUs), other government agencies, affected communities, and non-government organizations.
“If we were to merely relocate these communities without accounting for their basic needs, we would be doing the affected families a great disservice. The NHA will see to it that informal settlers will be resettled in homes they can call their own, with schools and community facilities well within reach,” Abad said.
Around P905.2 million of the fund for NHA-administered projects will go to rehousing families currently living in condemned buildings or structures.
An additional P568 million will be used to relocate poor or informal settler families affected by calamities to safe areas, as well as to provide housing assistance to families whose homes have been damaged by calamities, but who do not need to be transferred to a different location.
Meanwhile, P1.006 billion of the total P5.5-billion fund will be directed to local government units outside Metro Manila for the Regional Resettlement Program. The fund will support the relocation of families in high-risk areas, those affected by infrastructure projects and calamities, and those subject to court-order eviction.
Some P82.6-million fund will be allotted to housing support activities, while P252.4 million will be used to provide community support services for relocated families.
