UAE approves Dh299 million housing support for citizens
The Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme (SZHP), an initiative under the Ministry of
Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI), has issued 432 decisions for housing aid
valued at Dh298.7 million. This includes applications for house construction,
completion, purchase, maintenance, and upgrade.
The move is part of the Initiatives of the UAE President and is pursuant to the
order of UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan to
complete all housing grant applications submitted to the Programme, at a total
cost of around Dh2.3 billion.
Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, said:
"As we welcome the holy month of Ramadan, the month of giving, SZHP continues
its endeavors to enhance family stability, ensure decent living, and improve the
quality of life of UAE citizens. The UAE's wise leadership is deeply invested in
the government housing sector as it helps build a cohesive society that can
contribute to the progress of our nation."
Eng Mohamed Al Mansouri, Director of SZHP, said: "We have set ambitious plans to
meet the growing housing needs of UAE citizens. We work closely with our
partners from the federal and local government, the private sector, and the
banking sector to achieve these plans. The Programme follows in the steps of the
founding father, late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, by contributing to the
social wellbeing and prosperity of the people."
