ZAMBOANGA CITY, January 21 (PIA) – The National Housing Authority (NHA) has reported a 35.97 percent completion rate in the construction of houses under the Zamboanga City Roadmap to Recovery and Reconstruction (Z3R) as of December 31, 2015.

The figure is equivalent to 2,338 houses constructed, both on land and on stilts, out of the total 6,500 units targeted for construction under the Z3R project which comprises 19 housing packages.

Around 869 units of these completed houses have already been awarded to beneficiaries, while the construction of the remaining 2,971 units are still ongoing.

Based on NHA record, there are 1,653 one-storey housing units targeted for construction in Martha Drive Homeowners Association (HOA), Inc., Paniran, Tulungatung, St. Peter, Christian-Muslim, Islamic Village (Duplex loftable), Lustre HOA, Ayer 1, Rio Hondo (duplex loftable) and Ayer II. To date, some 892 units have already been completed.

Some 176 units of two-storey houses are also completed out of the 360 houses targeted for construction in Aplaya and Evangelista-Vista Homes.

Furthermore, about 1,270 houses on stilts are completed, out of the 4,487 units targeted for construction in seven areas.

On the other hand, all of the 1,661 families subject for the Home Material Assistance Program (HOMA) have already been given assistance as of December 2015, with the total amount of P49.83 million.

HOMA is the grant of P30 thousand worth of housing materials to families whose houses were slightly damaged by the Zamboanga siege.

In a press release issued by the Local Inter-Agency Committee (LIAC) chaired by Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, it stated that they are looking for ways and means to address delays in the implementation of the housing projects at the local level.
