The Committee established to oversee the review of the National Housing Trust (NHT) is expected to submit its final report to the Government next month.
On Thursday, delivering the annual Throne Speech in Parliament, Governor-General Sir Patrick Allen said the report will guide the implementation of the Administration’s strategic housing policy.
“This will provide the enabling framework within which the Government can realise its goal of accessible and affordable safe and legal housing solutions for all Jamaicans by 2030,” the Governor General said.
The changes contemplated are expected to respond to the diverse needs of “disadvantaged and vulnerable persons within the society,” he added.
The Committee, comprising persons from the public and private sectors, was appointed by Prime Minister Andrew Holness last year.
