FNPF General Manager Member Services Alipate Waqairawai says FNPF is building on improving its stakeholder relations and in this instance, partnering with TLTB reinforces their commitment to supporting FNPF members’ access to better housing opportunities.

He says with this MOU, they expect faster customer service response times for member application processing.

He adds that internal procedures will now enable better and more coordinated documentation verification across both of our institutions stating that this should also ensure earlier notifications on the status of member applications when applying for native leases.

Under the MOU, TLTB and FNPF will work closely together to ensure that FNPF members can easily access TLTB Leases for housing purposes.
