The department supplies the following services:
What we do
We manage and eradicate housing backlogs and curb land invasions by educating communities on the problems caused by these invasions.
We also provide layout plans for informal settlements and identify land that can be developed for the relocation of informal settlements.
We department empower communities through:
- Housing support centres and
- The People's Housing Process – an initiative which teaches the importance of saving money and aids with development of building skills.
Low income and special needs housing
Our department provides a wide range of rental housing options for the residents of Tshwane, such as rental opportunities for households earning above R2,500 per month. We also offer special needs housing for the aged, the disabled, people with HIV and Aids, and children who are orphaned by HIV and Aids.
For households earning less than R3,500 per month, we provide incremental low-cost housing. We also provide houses in mixed developments - in line with the Breaking New Ground Policy – Hyperlink to policy.
We de-stigmatise hostels by converting them into family units and developing economic ventures in which the community and the hostel residents can partake and own.
Our department also transfers ownership of properties owned by the Municipality (especially in township areas) to private individuals through a discount benefit scheme. We also operate a waiting list system and educate communities about the importance of the waiting list and the subsidy administration process.
