The City of Cape Town’s Human Settlements Directorate has handed over 121 Breaking New Ground opportunities to qualifying beneficiaries at the R33 million Eindhoven housing project in Delft thus far and will hand over forty-three additional units in March 2022. Once the project is completed, it will provide 600 housing opportunities to the metro’s most vulnerable residents.

The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, Councillor Malusi Booi and Human Settlements Directorate officials handed over keys to the beneficiaries and their families.

‘We are proud of the progress at our R33 million Eindhoven project. The project prioritises opportunities for the elderly and disabled and has already provided 121 opportunities to beneficiaries and their families. In March 2022, the city will hand over an additional forty-three homes to beneficiaries and we thank the City’s teams and contractors for their work and dedication in delivering the opportunities to the beneficiaries. The City is committed to housing provision and will continue to deliver more housing opportunities to beneficiaries in areas across the city over the coming months,’

‘The selection of beneficiaries for all City housing projects is done in accordance with the City’s Allocation Policy and the City’s Housing Needs Register to ensure that housing opportunities are allocated to qualifying beneficiaries in a fair and equitable manner. Residents should visit their nearest housing office to find out more about the available opportunities, and how to apply. Residents must remember to keep their information updated on our records so that they are alerted when an opportunity becomes available,’ said Councillor Booi.
