MANILA, Philippines — Officials of the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) and its attached agency, the Social Housing Finance Corp. (SHFC), oversaw the start of the construction of a condominium-type housing project in Pampanga over the weekend.

The project, being implemented under the Pambansang Pabahay para sa Pilipino Housing (4PH) program of the government, is expected to generate more than 8,300 units measuring 25 to 28 square meters each.

DHSUD Secretary Jose Rizalino Acuzar and SHFC president Federico Laxa led the inspection of the Crystal Peak Homes project in Barangay del Carmen in San Fernando on Saturday.

The project is situated on an eight-hectare property, where around 30 condominium-type buildings will be constructed.

Acuzar said the DHSUD and its attached key shelter agencies would visit different regions to ensure the timely and continuous implementation of the 4PH program.

“Site inspections help us monitor the actual situation on the ground, not only in ensuring the smooth and continuous implementation of the program, but also in assessing the needs and proposed improvements of the project,” Acuzar said.

The DHSUD is the lead agency for the implementation of the 4PH,which aims to construct one million housing units per year until 2028 as well as address the country’s housing gap of around 6.5 million units.

The DHSUD said it has signed more than 140 memoranda of understanding and broken ground in 26 areas across the country for housing projects under the 4PH program.

“We are grateful to our partner LGUs, KSAs, other agencies and the private sector for making this happen. We have a lot more to accomplish and we continuously call on everyone’s support,” Acuzar said. — Artemio Dumlao
