REQUEST FOR COVERAGE
RALLY @ NHA BULACAN
NHA Office, McArthur Highway Balagtas, Bulacan
(near Balagtas market)
TODAY, 17 APRIL 2017 10:00 AM
Some 500 legitimate applicants for housing project in Balagtas Bulacan will press for the approval of their pending applications before the National Housing Authority (NHA).
Their applications, which were accompanied by official endorsements from the Provincial Government, have been pending before the NHA since 2015 but no single application has been processed until now.
The residents complain that bureaucratic gridlock, corruption and downright neglect for legitimate applicants and beneficiaries were the main causes why thousands of housing units in Bulacan remain unoccupied and were left deteriorating into condemned state.
The occupation campaign organized by members of Kadamay last month has effectively exposed the sad state of the government’s housing program under NHA.
The protesters will demand that their pending applications be finally approved and all idle housing projects be awarded to legitimate and willing applicants, including the homeless people in Bulacan.
