Initiated by Hermosa Mayor Jopet Inton and NHA OIC director for Pampanga, Bataan and Zambales area, Ines Gonzales, the distribution of housing units and titles of land were actually given to the respective families as part of the mayor’s housing program called “Katibayan ng Alokasyong Pabahay”.
Once they were given titles, the beneficiaries can then formally occupy their housing units although it needs a little renovation as these units have long been idle and neglected in the past administrations.
According to Inton, he talked with the leadership of NHA in December so the idle housing units could be given to homeless people but qualified beneficiaries in his town.
Aside from giving his constituents a decent housing, Mayor Inton also wanted to prevent that these units would be taken over by professional squatters or land grabbers as what being happened in other areas where syndicates, the Kadamay group who are notorious in grabbing housing units and lands.
To ensure that these housing units are secured, Mayor Inton deployed security personnel to guard the area and secure the occupants.
The said housing units here was the first ever housing program initiated successfully by a local government unit through the coordination of NHA in a bid by Mayor Inton to provide decent housing to his constituents.
Among the beneficiaries are uniformed personnel from PNP and Bureau of Fire Protection.
