The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing has launched a pilot housing program aiming to construct 150 starter homes to benefit deserving Belizeans. These individuals will be selected through an application process. An application can be obtained by emailing the ministry at [email protected] Following the pilot phase, the housing program is expected to roll out in the next fiscal year.

The pilot phase calls for 150 homes to be built across the country. A check with the ministry revealed that no applications have been made from the Cayes (Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye). Islanders are welcome to apply. One of the requirements is that applicants have access to a piece of land as the ministry is not responsible for land procurement.

Applicants with access to land will receive priority to have their homes built. The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing indicated that they continue working with the Ministry of Natural Resources to offer housing projects along with a piece of land. However, at this time, only those with property will benefit.

These are all single-bedroom homes. Homeowners can then expand the house if they wish to add additional rooms. Successful applicants will be required to pay a fee of $25 per week until the house is paid in full. According to the ministry, to date, some two dozen houses have already been built. These approvals went to the neediest from across the country. The construction of each house is estimated to be from $30,000 to $35,000.

The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing is building 150 starter homes to be allocated to the neediest of the needy. By providing houses, the ministry is also restoring dignity and basic human rights, including the right to shelter and running water. An affordable payment plan allows recipients to achieve what many dream of: a place to call home.

Interested persons can pick up an application form from the ministry or email [email protected] to request a copy.

A transformation continues across Belize through the MIDH Pilot Homes Project. Four families in the Cayo District today, overwhelmed with emotions, received the keys to their own homes. While a symbolic ribbon-cutting might be over within a few seconds, the impact of this housing project will last a lifetime. This is the goal of Plan Belize - building foundations, changing lives.
