The National Housing Authority (NHA) has distributed a total of P1.8 million in financial aid under the Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP) to 180 families in Antipolo City and Taytay, Rizal.

On September 15, 2023, 158 beneficiaries from Brgys. Dolores and San Juan in Taytay, Rizal, whose homes were destroyed by separate fire incidents in April 2023, received Php 10,000 each.

Meanwhile, on September 8, 2023, 22 families from Sitio Vista Grande, Brgy. Sta. Cruz, Antipolo City, whose homes were buried in a landslide last July 16, 2023, also received the same amount of financial assistance.

Representing General Manager Joeben Tai during the distribution were NHA Region IV Manager Roderick T. Ibañez and Rizal District Office Officer-In-Charge Carmencita V. Calpo.

Antipolo City Mayor Casimiro A. Ynares III and Taytay Mayor Allan Martine S. De Leon, and other officials of both local government units were also present during the two events.

The EHAP is one of NHA’s programs which aims to provide financial aid to families whose homes were affected by natural or human-induced calamities such as landslides or fire incidents to help them rebuild their homes and provide an opportunity for a fresh start.
