The Public Rental Board has already begun their income survey and has covered more than eighty five percent of their tenants.
The survey is important to ensure those that are getting above $25,000 as their annual income are to have their own home ownership.
PRB Officer Sitiveni Tabua has confirmed it’s important for them to allocate spaces to applicants who are lower income earners and the need for tenants to move is paramount.
“When they move in they need meet the criteria of 16,500 to 25,000 but when they resides here at the estate ,some of them get promoted but we have been talking to them one on one basis. We have been given them letters, some have been coming back to us and also at thgis moment we have been talking with Housing Authority on how to accommodate them”
The need for PRB to look at all avenues – including constructing more rental units – is important at this stage considering the number of people in need of housing
