Gov’t To Launch Housing Program, STEP Next Week

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The coalition government is preparing to launch its first housing project since taking office two years ago.

The Team Unity Housing Solutions program is scheduled for groundbreaking at 9:30am next week Friday, February 17, at Corner House on Wellington Road.

Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris:

“We will start this year, our housing project; and bear in mind that construction contributes significantly to the growth and improved quality of life. We said that we would pump $50 million in a housing program; suffice it to say that the housing or property ownership strategy that we are employing, envisages the NHC playing a critical role in providing housing solutions to the lower income levels, at which they would be getting these loan finance housing solutions at preferred interest rate between 2 and 5%.”
