Haiti - Politic : The EPPLS maintains its objective of 20,000 housing built during the mandate of Moïse
Yvon Buissereth assures that his institution is redoubling its efforts to enable the Haitian population in need to have access to decent housing. However, he recalls that the demand is vastly superior to the offer, recalling that Haiti has only about 12,000 social housing and that the accumulated deficit of social housing was in 2012 more than 400,000 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-14348-haiti-social-a-cumulative-deficit-of-more-than-400-000-housing.html and currently borders the millions of units...

In terms of balance sheet, Yvon Buissereth announced that more than 2,000 social housing units are currently under construction in the Southern Peninsula https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21715-haiti-politics-project-to-build-2-000-houses-in-the-great-south.html , of which 220 are practically completed. In addition, 424 dwellings are also ready for delivery to the inhabitants of Ouanaminthe and Terrier Rouge in the Nord-East department. More than 350 homes are under construction in Lagrange in the Artibonite department.

For the fiscal year 2018-2019, Buissereth announced the construction of 7,000 homes across the country: 3,300 for the departments of the South, Grand'Anse and Nippes, 700 for the West, 500 for the Northeast, 500 for the North-West, 500 for the North, 500 for the Artibonite, 500 for the Center and 500 for the South-East for a cost of over 4 billion gourdes (2017-2018 fiscal year ± 3,000 housing units built and 10,000 housing to be built during the rest of the presidential term).

He states that all social housing built by EPPLS meets seismic and anticyclonic standards and their unit cost of construction ranges from US $ 6,500 to US $ 10,000 (or more). These are spacious houses all equipped, erected on land without land conflict.

With 1 million accumulated housing shortages, the EPPLS is facing a titanic challenge, especially as over the next 10 years, Haitian demography will continue to grow and add new housing needs, without taking into account the hundreds of thousands of Haitians living in an irregular migration situation, who will be repatriated by the Dominican Republic and other countries...
