In a bid to avoid displacement in the implementation of housing projects in Pasay City, the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD), the city government, and the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) have signed an agreement pertaining to the Pambansang Pabahay para sa Pilipino (4PH) program.

Housing Secretary Jose Rizalino Acuzar described the initiative as another “tatak PBBM” project prioritizing the welfare of the common people and promoting whole-of-government approach.

The agreement involved the establishment of a staging area for the informal settler families who would need to be relocated pending completion of the 4PH project in Pasay.

“The project under this MOA will serve as a showcase area of our promotion of not only the 4PH program but also our desire toward urban renewal or redevelopment. Pasay City will be the pilot area of our urban renewal program that is included in the mandate of DHSUD in urban development,” Acuzar said. Rio N. Araja

The staging area is first of its kind under 4PH as there would be no displaced beneficiary-families while the construction of their new homes within their host city is ongoing.
