"We ask the government through the Public Housing and Settlement Area Agency to more intensely lobby the central government, so we get more quota for house renovation," Abdul Rahman Az said during a plenary meeting on the 2019 Budget Accountability draft on Thursday (July 30, 2020)
The district government also asked to establish a good relations with a member of the House Reprentative H Rifky Karsayuda, who is from HST, because the Ministry of PUPR (Public Works and Housing) is his partner in Commission V.
"Thus we can synergize with each other to get a bigger quota for the house renovation from the ministry. We see that there are still many uninhabitable houses in several sub-districts of the HST," he pointed out.
Head of Housing and Settlement of the agency Ahmad Syafaat when confirmed said that in 2016 the RTLH recorded was 7.835.
"The results of verification of RTLH data collection in 2019 the remaining number was 4.270 units that need to be assisted," he said.
He said the minimum target per year is 1000 houses, insya Allah (god Willing) it could be completed within four years and no more uninhabitable houses in the HST.
Previously the annual quota from the state budget allocation was between 300 to 500. "Alhamdulillah, this year we get a quota of 800 units and construction have started," said Syafaat.
Next year, he said, the target for proposal to the ministry would be 1.421 units.
