Today, there is a national shortage of affordable rental homes for low income people, including civil service retirees, the elderly, people with disabilities, families with children, and other populations. The percentage of affordable and available rental homes to the number of households with extremely low incomes is very alarming. As a result, most families and individuals in this category pay more than half of their income on rent, leaving few resources to cover other basic needs, including food, healthcare, childcare, education, and savings. In addition, on any given night, more than 500,000 people are experiencing homelessness nationwide
The connection between affordable rental homes and infrastructure is clear: like roads and bridges, affordable homes are a long-term asset that helps communities and the lowest income families thrive. Targeted rental housing investments should be included in any infrastructure package.
Housing is fundamental to Nigeria’s national infrastructure and must be part of any infrastructure plan. Opportunity for Nigerians begins with affordable, well-designed homes in thriving communities – a must to promote equitable outcomes for working families and reach our full potential as a nation.
The promoters of Abuja international housing show strongly believe that affordable housing investment is an essential piece of Nigeria’s infrastructure strategy. When communities don’t have adequate affordable housing for their workforce, families suffer. Investment in affordable housing improves economic growth, promotes economic mobility and supports job creation and increased incomes. Any infrastructure package needs to include a robust affordable housing component to allow for increased economic impact.
It is for the above reasons that affordable rental & social housing will be on the fore front of discussions during the week long program. Never before has one event given you so many things you need to compete in one place.
