BONG GO’s proposed Rental Housing Subsidy Bill to benefit homeless Pinoys

‘Access to decent housing a must for every Filipino’ as Bong Go refiles proposed Rental Housing Subsidy Bill

Considering the persistent issues of poverty, unemployment and limited access to affordable housing, aggravated by the ongoing pandemic and other crises, Senator Christopher “Bong” Go has once again filed his Rental Housing Subsidy Bill to help address homelessness in the country.

Go underscored the importance of immediately acting upon the challenges faced by homeless Filipinos nationwide. He then cited how the proposed measure can provide adequate, sustainable and habitable shelter for Filipinos affected by disasters and other crisis situations.

Under the proposed measure, a housing and social protection program will be developed that will provide disaster victims better and more affordable access to the formal housing market through the provision of rental subsidies provided by the government.

Thus, the bill seeks to also address the plight of displaced families caused by various crises and calamities, whether natural or man-made disasters, as well as those families who cannot afford or build their own homes. READ MORE
