IDB Backs Housing Scheme in Trinidad and Tobago

The Inter-American Development Bank is lending Trinidad and Tobago USD40 million to help upgrade housing for low-income households.

The program aims to regularize the tenure of property for families living in squatter settlements and subsidize housing improvements and construction of new homes. It also seeks to boost the institutional capacity of the Ministry of Housing and the Environment.
