The Eerste River Military Veterans Housing Project is one of the initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life of military veterans.

The project will comprise a total of 73 residential units, specifically designed to meet the needs of military veterans. Construction on the project commenced in 2016 and thus far 20 units have been completed, with some already occupied. The project is due to be completed at the end of May 2017.
