The Quezon City Council has moved to turn over a 1-hectare area in Barangay Bagong Silangan to occupying informal settlers (ISFs) following the approval of Ordinance No. SP-3006, S-2021 on March 15, 2021.

In the ordinance introduced by Quezon City 2nd District Councilor Mikey Belmonte, the property spanning 10,766 square meters located in Sitio Kumunoy, Barangay Bagong Silangan has been declared as a Socialized Housing Site and will be given to qualified ISFs living in the area under the Direct Sale Program of the City.

"One priority of the Quezon City government is to provide affordable and decent housing that is still within the city to thousands of informal settler families. We're expanding the number of communities under our socialized housing project to accommodate more residents who live here with their families and who work here," explained Belmonte.

The private property was forfeited through an auction sale in favor of the Quezon City Government and shall now be subjected to the necessary staff work under by the executive branch, particularly, the Housing Community Development and Resettlement Department (HCDRD).

"Under the Direct Sale Program of the city, the HCDRD will plan and develop the site, orient prospective beneficiaries, select those who are qualified, and help them process loans to pay their respective lots. The city will guide them through every step of the way to ensure that they can secure their individual titles upon payment," Councilor Belmonte explained.

"We hope to do the same for other ISFs in the city through programs that are favorable to all stakeholders - residents, property owners, and the city government. After all, security in housing is part of the city's mandate to pave the way for inclusive growth," he added.
