On 25th December 2020, the honourable Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Shri. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy launched the flagship programme of ‘Navaratnalu Pedalandariki Illu’ (Housing for the Poor). This landmark housing project aims to benefit nearly 30.75 lakh (a little over 3 million) families in the state through housing intervention.

Habitat for Humanity India has been appointed by the Government of Andhra Pradesh as a Knowledge Partner and will provide support in building homes for the families from the economically weaker section of the society through a state-wide intervention called Impact Andhra Pradesh.

As the first step, Habitat for Humanity India is organising a 2-day sector conference called India Housing Forum that will help create convergence and synergy to address the need for housing through community mobilization in a holistic, integrated approach. After the conference, Habitat India will be involved in the execution of the ‘Navaratnalu Pedalandariki Illu’ (Housing for the Poor) project with the Government of Andhra Pradesh which will be governed by an independent agreement at a later date.

The goal of this regional event of India Housing Forum is to accelerate the growth of housing in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Scheduled on 25th and 26th March 2021 in Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh), the forum will bring together key Government stakeholders, policy-makers, corporates, architects, housing sector developers, non-governmental organizations with an aim to create coalitions to support the implementation of Impact Andhra Pradesh.
