The first home of an expansion project for the NEMA starter homes has been completed in record time: Four weeks to be exact.

Originally built to alleviate problems faced by super low income families whose homes were destroyed during the passage of Hurricane Georges in 1998, the homes were deemed a temporary solution to those in need of such assistance.

According to officials at a gathering to mark the occasion, it was never intended to be a longterm solution, as many of the owners had growing families.

Minister of Housing Hon. Cedric Liburd affectionately known as the “Action Minister” said his ministry would continue to ensure that the housing needs of the people of the Federation were met, regardless of their income bracket, maintaining Government’s positive track record.
