Senator-elect Bong Go will ask the National Housing Authority (NHA) to impose a one-year moratorium on the monthly dues of housing beneficiaries who suffered from a fire.

Go shared one of his priorities during a visit Wednesday to the 23 families who were left homeless after a fire in Brgy. Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City.

“Kakausapin natin ang NHA para yung mga kwalipikadong makakuha ng housing assistance ay hindi muna pababayarin sa unang taon ng kanilang amortization. Ito ay para matulungan natin silang makabangon agad,” he said.

Go said every family deserves a decent home. To achieve his goal, he also vowed to push for a long-term housing roadmap for the estimated 6.5 million Filipinos who do not have a permanent shelter.

“Wala na dapat squatter sa sariling bayan,” he said.
