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.
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
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.
