A dozen families from Lonquimay were awarded their own homes today, built through the “My House” Plan. In the same act, an agreement was signed to start with the construction of another 20 social housing units, which will make it possible to significantly reduce the gap in enrollment in the municipality.
The Mi Casa Plan arose from the firm decision of the Government of La Pampa to continue with a policy that is sensitive to the most vulnerable in order to continue providing decent housing for La Pampa.
When La Pampa stopped receiving national funds for the construction of social housing, this Provincial Plan was activated, with funds shared between the province and the municipalities, thus joining the national government with its policy of federalizing the possibility of dreaming of owning a home.
Prior to the delivery ceremony and on the same land, an agreement was signed where the provincial government, through the IPAV, will contribute to the Municipality of Lonquimay, the funds destined for the construction of 20 houses of the Provincial Plan “Houses La Pampa”, where the municipality assumes sole responsibility for the execution. This administrative act was carried out by the Minister of Works and Public Services, Julio Rojo, and the local mayor, Manuel Feito.
CAPACITY AND DECISION
The Minister of Works and Public Services, Julio Rojo, celebrated the delivery of the houses to their winners, after a process where “local labor was generated and also came to supply a social demand such as housing.”
“There are more than 75 registered. Now comes the concrete possibility with the signing of today’s agreement to reduce that amount to 55 families waiting, I am convinced that they will achieve it”, he continued.
