Phu Yen (VNA) – The south central province of Phu Yen has effectively carried out its housing assistance policy for those who rendered their services to the nation, thus supporting many families of policy beneficiaries.

This year, the province was allocated with over 93 billion VND (4 million USD) to implement its housing assistance policy which is expected to benefit 3,255 households.

In the first half of this year, the province helped build 392 new houses, as well as repairing another 354 houses. A total of 131 new houses are currently being built, while 221 old houses are under repair.

Nguyen Trong Dong, Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Construction, said that there are still a lot of families in demand for housing in the locality.

In 2018, Phu Yen will strive to complete the assistance for policy beneficiaries following the allocated capital.

At present, the work mainly depends on the State budget. As such, the province needs to encourage local organisations and individuals to participate in building and repairing houses for policy beneficiaries.–VNA
