AFFORDABLE HOUSING ROADSHOW - Register your interest in accessing Affordable Housing

The Department of Human Settlements will host an Affordable Housing workshop in the Saldanha Bay Municipal area. The workshop is part of a roadshow that will continue during the month of September as the Department travels across the province to participate in workshops targeted at the GAP market.

The Affordable Roadshow is an initiative by the Department of Human Settlements to inform the public of the programmes available for people seeking access to affordable housing. Affordable housing is for the Rental and Ownership of properties for families earning more than R3 500.00 but less than R15 000.00 per month (and for families who have not owned a property before).

The Affordable Roadshow will highlight the following:

  • Planning for Affordable Housing projects in various municipalities.
  • The growth in the need for affordable housing by municipality and the province as a whole.   
  • Assistance available for people wishing to purchase a home. This refers to the Finance Linked Institutional Subsidy Programme (FLISP). It is available to people earning between R3 500 and R 15 000. It can be used to purchase any residential property or previously subsidised housing stock as well as to build as house on a serviced stand (by NHBRC approved builders).
  • Social Housing:  This is a rental option, currently available to people earning between R1 500 and R 7 500 per month. It provides for secure long-term rental in properties owned and managed by Social Housing Institutions. These institutions are not government entities and are independently managed. Social Housing is delivered in designated Restructuring Zones which allows for highly favourable rental rates.

Provincial Minister for Human Settlements, Bonginkosi Madikizela, will deliver a keynote address at the workshop below.

Venue: Louwville Community Hall, corner of Maclon & Piet-My-Vrou Streets, Vredenburg
Date:     Tuesday, 19 September 2017
Time:    15:00pm - 16:30pm

All community members who qualify for GAP housing are encouraged to attend.
