The Government of Kenya (GOK) has committed to provide 500,000 homes with the supporting infrastructure to Kenyans using innovative funding mechanisms and technologies under the Affordable Housing Programme (AHP).
The State Department for Housing and Urban Development (SDHUD) under the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing, Urban Development and Public Works, (MTIHUD&PW) is championing the realization of the AHP through establishment of a robust project delivery and financing framework that will leverage on private sector funding. In this regard, the government is collaborating with private sector strategic partners to plan and develop the affordable housing units while the government avails parcels of land for the housing development.
The first AHP project in Park Road, Nairobi consisting of 1,370 No. one-, two-, and three-bedroom units was successfully completed in October 2020. The demand for the houses was high and there are many Kenyans who applied for allocation of the houses but were unable to secure a unit. The State Department is therefore encouraged by the demand and is in the process of developing housing units in Starehe and Shauri Moyo, Nairobi and Bondeni, Nakuru Municipality. The groundbreaking for the Bondeni, Nakuru Municipality project was done in May 2021 and construction is ongoing. The project will be completed in 30 months. The procurement process for the Shauri Moyo and Starehe projects is at an advanced stage and the projects will be completed in 24 months after groundbreaking.
The project details are as shown below.
