The objective of the housing grant is to assist especially disadvantaged households to obtain and maintain acceptable homes.
You can apply to the municipality for a housing grant to help you buy a home, build a home or improve your current home. The grant may also be used for improved accessibility in the homes of elderly and disabled people.
Housing grants are strictly means-tested in relation to one's financial situation. Only those suffering the severest hardship can expect to receive housing grants. Get in touch with your municipality for more information on this scheme.
