Malacanang: Over 26,000 Yolanda housing units still unfinished


The National Housing Authority came up with a report which is very sad to those who were affected by the super typhoon.
Citing the report at least 26,000 housing units for Yolanda victims remain unfinished more than five years after Yolanda super typhoon hit the Visayas, Malacanang said.

As per the report, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said that 56,140 of 205,128 housing units constructed for Yolanda victims are in Eastern Visayas. 
Of the 56,140 houses, only 29,531 units have been completed, including 18,183 that have been occupied and 11,348 ready for occupancy. 
To remedy the issue, Nograles directed the mayors in Leyte to reactivate the local inter-agency committee (LIAC) that were formed to ensure the successful turnover of all the Yolanda resettlement housing projects.
“We have to address this by reactivating the LIAC. If the LIAC is active, major milestones will be observed such as the submission of a complete list of beneficiaries, monitoring the status of the construction, facilitating the actual transfer of the beneficiaries and coming up with occupancy rules and regulations,” Secretary Nograles said in a statement. 
The LIAC is composed of mayors and department heads of local government officers as well as members of civil society groups and representatives from the private sector.
The government aims to complete all the housing projects by next year.
