The Western Cape Department of Human Settlements will on the 1st of April until the 17th of April open the applications for individual housing subsides.

The provincial government has implemented additional criteria to ensure that the limited subsides available were allocated to those who have been waiting for houses for a long time and were most vulnerable.

MEC of Human Settlements Bonginkosi Madikizela said often potential housing beneficiaries had used the individual housing subsidy as way to jump the housing queue.

Departmental Spokesperson Nathan Adriaanse says for those of our communities we have people earning between zero and R3 500 they are the ones who qualify for the housing subsidy.

Having said that, we have revised the criteria somewhat in that they will need to be on the housing demand data base for a minimum period of ten years and also in line with National government we asked that priority be given to applicants over the age of 40, Adriaanse added.
