The Housing Development Agency was launched earlier this month to gain land for housing development. It will also assist in achieving government's target of eradicating slums by 2014.
Since 1994, the Government has built 2,7-million houses providing shelter to over 13-million people. By the end of this month, about 2,8-million houses would have been built, providing shelter to more than 13,5-million people. It is expected that the HDA will fast track housing delivery.
The HDA has already established four projects in the county: one in KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, Northern Cape and in Limpopo.
