- Assistance available for people wishing to purchase a home. This refers to the Finance Linked Institutional Subsidy Programme (FLISP). It providesIt is available to people earning between R3 500 and R 15 000. It can be used to purchase any residential property or previously subsidised housing stock as well as to build as house on a serviced stand (by NHBRC approved builders).
- Social Housing. This is a rental option, currently available to people earning between R1 500 and R 7 500 per month. It provides for secure long-term rental in properties owned and managed by Social Housing Institutions. These institutions are not government entities and are independently managed. Social Housing is delivered in designated Restructuring Zones which allows for highly favourable rental rates.
Other municipal areas to be visited during September include Witzenberg and Langeberg municipalities.
Details will be made available during the course of the month.
All media houses are invited to attend.
