Launch of the Marcos administration’s housing initiative by DHSUD in QC.

On Thursday, the Quezon City government and the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) inked an MOU for a housing project in the city, officially launching the housing program of the Marcos administration.

The agreement for developing the project that would soon emerge in Harmony Hills Terraces in Barangay Batasan Hills was signed by DHSUD Secretary Jose Rizalino Acuzar and Mayor Joy Belmonte, and was immediately followed by groundbreaking ceremonies.

The project aligns with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s objective to address the nation’s housing need by giving 6.5 million families a secure, decent, and sustainable home within six years.

To enable us to successfully complete this project, “Mahalaga po ang kooperasyon ng bawat isa. Umaasa po kami sa DHSUD na magiging kasangga namin kayo simula ngayon hanggang sa kahuli-hulihang bubong na ating ipagkakaloob para masiguro na may bahay ang bawat pamilyang Pilipino. (It is necessary for us to work together to reach the comfort this Acuzar referred to the Pambansang Pabahay Para Sa Pilipino: Zero ISF Program for 2028 of the Marcos administration. “We at the DHSUD are hoping that you will be our partners as we embark on these projects until we turn over the last piece of shelter to a beneficiary as we want to ensure that every Filipino family will have a home),” Acuzar said.

The plan seeks to construct 1 million dwelling units annually.

“Unti-unti na pong matutupad ang pangarap ng bawat pamilyang Pilipino na nagnanais magkaroon ng sariling bahay, sa pamamagitan po ng Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino Program (the dream of every Filipino family to have their own homes through the Pambansang Pabahay Para sa

On the other hand, the local administration pledged to allocate and secure various land parcels for the DHSUD for the construction of housing complexes.

According to Belmonte, “The MOA signing solidified our previous agreement to work hand-in-hand in building houses for the city’s residents, especially the ISFs (informal settler families),” adding that they hope to build many housing projects through this agreement that will benefit Quezon City residents, especially those who cannot afford a home.

According to the MOU, the DHSUD must work with the LGU and other pertinent organizations to facilitate the implementation of the housing projects, either directly or through its key shelter agencies (KSAs).

The government of Quezon City is entrusted with completing the necessary permissions and licenses as quickly as possible to implement the project fully. Additionally, it will handle beneficiary listing tasks, including social preparation, ISF census enumeration, socioeconomic profile, and social parameter setting.

Acuzar also urged other LGU partners, the corporate sector, and concerned government organizations to assist the DHSUD in carrying out the administration’s priority housing initiative.

Along with the cooperation with the Quezon City administration, the DHSUD also obtained one with the Development Bank of the Philippines during the same occasion (DBP).

The DHSUD and DBP also agreed to a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that required the financial institution to implement a loan program with a focus on lending money for real estate development to assist the housing projects of the agency.

On the other hand, the DHSUD is tasked with identifying the project funding requirements where the involvement of DBP is essential and helping it prepare the necessary paperwork for implementing the developed lending program.
