Housing Database Verification and Registration Drive in Overstrand
Overstrand Municipality's housing waiting list verification and registration drive kick off on 1 April 2022.
Residents in need of government subsidised housing will have the opportunity to complete waiting list application forms as first-time applicants or verify/update details already on the system.
There are 13 923 applicants currently registered on the database, but information of many applicants may be incomplete or out-dated. The housing department often finds that beneficiaries do not update their information with regards to changes in income, number of financial dependents, change of address, etc.
The income band for Finance Linked Individual Subsidy Programme (FLISP) has increased in July 2018 from R15,000 to R22,000 and it therefore creates an opportunity for more residents to register/verify their information.
"It is critical that the database we work from is as up to date and accurate as possible," says Municipal Manager, Dean O'Neill.
The housing demand for Overstrand Municipality is also placed on the Provincial housing demand database and therefore it is of utmost importance that affected beneficiaries co-operate in their own interest.
The new and updated Housing Demand Database drive will ultimately help us with planning of future housing projects.
Please take note that the project will end on 30 April 2022, but the housing demand database will remain open for registration/verifications.
