The National Housing Authority (NHA) says it has received funding from the National Social Security & Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP) to construct 70 additional affordable homes.
Mr. Prince A. Wreh, deputy managing director for administration, told journalists that the procurement process for qualified Liberian contractors has begun and hoped the project will commence before the rainy season, or by June this year.
Wreh, who did not disclose the dollar amount for the new units, expressed NHA’s gratitude for the partnership with NASSCORP that has continued to provide support for the NHA to implement its national shelter program.
Wreh also commended President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf for the government’s support to build affordable homes for qualified Liberians to own their homes for the first time.
He said upon completion of the 70 units containing three and two bedroom housing units, it will add up to a total of 163 individual units.
On behalf of the NHA, Wreh expressed appreciation to President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf for her support to complete its cardinal function to enable Liberians own their own homes.
The NASSCORP Village housing estate project is part of the National Housing Authority’s 5,000 affordable housing units and home ownership and mortgage program. It was formulated in 2012.
