The Quezon City council has passed a resolution ratifying a memorandum of agreement (MoA) for the development of an on-site socialized housing project for persons with disabilities (PWDs).
Mayor Hebert “Bistek” Bautista signed the MoA with Secretary Dinky Soliman of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and District 3 Rep. Jorge “Bolet” Banal Jr.
Under Presidential Proclamation No. 504, Series of 2003, a parcel of land described as Lot No. 7-F, Sub-block No. 13-F, Psd-473, with an area of 31,777 square meters, more or less, was reserved for the rehabilitation center purposes for PWDs under the supervision and administration of the DSWD.
The parcel of land is the present site of the National Vocational Rehabilitation Center.
The QC government has created a task force on socialized housing and development pursuant to Local Executive Order 6, Series of 2010 for the transformation of the blighted areas into decent communities through development of socialized housing, by partnering to undertake and provide necessary and appropriate assistance to affected families.
In addition, the city government created a special task force, the STF Escopa, composed of its line agencies, the Office of the District 3 representative and the barangay councils of Escopa I, II, II and IV to help and facilitate the implementation of development projects in Escopa.
The overall development of Escopa includes the proposed development of on-site housing project for PWDs and the road improvement of the main road of the four barangays.
It was the QC government that initiated moves to have an on-site housing project for PWDs.
