MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Budget and Management said Tuesday it released P212.9 million for the implementation of the National Housing Authority’s resettlement program.

In a statement, the DBM said the NHA’s program “provides new settlements for families occupying danger areas such as waterways/riverbanks, railroad tracks, sidewalks, etc., and those displaced from sites earmarked for government infrastructure projects.”

“To the extent possible, the in-city resettlement approach is adopted to minimize the social, economic, cultural and political impacts of dislocation,” the DBM said.

“Off-city resettlement is resorted to when all means to implement the former has been exhausted,” it added.

The DBM in July also released P55.9 million for the same program of the NHA. — Ian Nicolas Cigaral
