With the approval of General Manager Joeben Tai, the National Housing Authority (NHA) awarded land titles to 65 qualified beneficiaries in Quezon City on December 7, 2022 at the Holy Spirit Covered Court in Quezon City.

NHA Officer-in-Charge of the Office of the Assistant General Manager Roderick T. Ibañez represented General Manager Joeben Tai in the awarding ceremony.

The beneficiaries are members of various homeowners’ associations in the National Government Center Housing and Development Project (NGCHDP), a program of the NHA under Republic Act No. 9207, which authorizes the Authority to manage government-owned idle lands for housing development.

The said project is under the People’s Housing Alternative for Social Empowerment Land Acquisition Development Program (PHASE-LADP), a program of the national government to allocate government-owned idle lands for the urban poor.

Under this program, qualified beneficiaries were awarded 36 to 54 sqm. government-owned lots. Upon full payment, land titles are then transferred to the awardees.

The awarding ceremony serves as an inspiration to other beneficiaries to continue paying for their houses or lot units awarded to them to fulfill their dreams of owning their own home or land.

Joining OIC Ibañez were Quezon City District Office OIC Engr. Rose Michelle Padre-Mahamud and NCR East Sector OIC Engr. Maura D. Aggarao. Quezon City Mayor Josefina “Joy” G. Belmonte represented by Atty. Bong Teodoro, DILG Undersecretary for Barangay Affairs Felicito A. Valmocina represented by PCC West President Jasmin Bautista, and Brgy. Holy Spirit Captain Lydia R.
