Antigua and Barbuda - Housing

The Central Housing and Planning Authority (CHAPA) advises on suitable sites, rehabilitates houses in the event of disaster (priamrily hurricaines), develops new housing tracts, and redevelops blighted areas. In March 2003, the government announced that plans were in place for CHAPA to build a number of affordable housing developments on private lands and to institute a Housing Improvement Mortgage program to make it easier for citizens to purchase these homes. At least six housing developments are planned as part of a three-year program to meet increased demand for housing. Most of these planned homes are single family dwellings with two or three bedrooms.
