350 migrant families will have homes thanks to a deal signed by DPWH and NHA.
It is guaranteed that more than 300 informal settler families (ISFs) that will be impacted by significant flood-control projects in Metro Manila will be properly relocated to suitable housing.
This comes after the National Housing Authority (NHA) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) signed agreements guaranteeing housing for 350 ISFs from the cities of Malabon and Manila.
The cost of the housing projects is PHP 340.60 million.
DPWH will release/transfer to NHA PHP283.6 million in accordance with the agreements made on March 15 to pay for the four buildings needed for the relocation of 274 eligible ISFs from eight villages in Malabon.
An additional PHP56.78 million will be given to NHA for 76 more ISFs in Manila.
According to a statement released by the DPWH on Friday, project director Ramon Arriola III of the DPWH Unified Project Management Office – Flood Control Management Cluster, manager Jovita Panopio of the NHA-National Capital Region (NCR) North Sector Office, and officer-in-charge Daniel Cocjin of the NHA-NCR West Sector all attended the signing.
By enabling DPWH to provide to NHA with the cash necessary for its relocation/housing program, the memorandum of cooperation, according to Sadain, will hasten the delivery of structural and non-structural flood-control measures.
These agreements “ensure that affected ISFs of the Metro Manila Flood Control Management Project Phase 1 would have safer dwellings with access to basic utilities and facilities, as well as employment possibilities,” he added in a statement.
By renovating and modernizing an estimated 36 existing pumping stations and constructing 20 new pumping stations, the Metro Manila Flood Control Management Project Phase 1 seeks to modernize existing drainage areas in the NCR. The project is jointly funded by the World Bank and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.
Together with ensuring inclusive housing and resettlement for families impacted by the project, the project also intends to reduce the amount of solid garbage in waterways.
