Housing Grants Available…But Only If Area Reps Approve

Denton Belisle

And while the establishment of the social housing policy is the latest initiative being undertaken by the Ministry of Housing in a very long time, the Ministry has long been involved in home improvement grants. We asked C.E.O. Belisle just how those are working out. Well, they are working alright, once you have the approval of your elected area representative, you may just be entitled to one of those grants. Here’s what he said.

 

Denton Belisle, C.E.O., Ministry of Housing

“Right now the Ministry of Housing is primarily just involved in home improvement grants to deserving families as recommended by the various area representatives. But we hope to do a wider program which will attack the root of the problem.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“How do you create an environment then that is free from the political claws, if I must refer to it as that, from giving these opportunities to people who support them and not necessarily people who are deserving?”

 

Denton Belisle

“Well, I can only work with what is given to me and what is given to me is to approve those that are recommended by the elected area representatives for which the funds are provided through the ministry of housing. I will not get into the politics of it that is not my job. I can only say that we will administer the funds as best we can within the framework as provided under the present regime.”
