KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 19 — The Federal Territories Department will open applications for affordable housing projects under the Residensi Wilayah initiative at the Central Zone Madani Rakyat Programme, which will run from February 23 to 25 at the Kuala Selangor Sports Complex.

Its deputy director-general (management and socioeconomics), Datuk Parang Abai@Thomas, said this aims to provide more low-income residents with the opportunity to own their dream homes.

“Throughout this three-day programme, we will showcase three out of six initiatives under the Usaha Jaya Insan Programme (PUJI), including Infra@PUJI, which offers affordable homes priced below RM300,000.

“This also opens up opportunities for Selangor residents who work in Kuala Lumpur to own homes near their workplaces,” he said during a radio interview on NASIONALfm today.
