It’s an honor to be with President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in witnessing the groundbreaking ceremony of the government’s AFP-PNP Housing project Casa San Miguel in Barangay San Agustin, Concepcion, Tarlac.

The President’s presence in the ceremony only proved his sincere concern with the people as well as showed that affordable and mass housing for our gallant and noble men and women in uniform is part of his pro-peopleadvocacies.

As the Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Urban Planning, Housing and Resettlement, I extend my sincerest gratitude to the President for this project in recognition of the sacrifices and dedication of our soldiers and policemen to uphold our laws and promote lasting peace and order in the country.

Also reforms were already instituted by the HUDCC and NHA under Chairman Ed Del Rosario and GM Jun Escalada. The minimum size for AFP/PNP/BFP/BJMP Housing is now 40sqm, double of the controversial AFP/PNP Housing in the past admin. There are now 3 models and sizes to choose from: 40sqm, 60sqm and 80 sqm!

Also present in the event were Tarlac Governor Susan Yap, HUDCC Chairman Eduardo del Rosario and NHA Gen. Manager Jun Escalada.
