The community of La Plaine to benefit from government’s Housing Revolution Project
Minister for Social Services, Community Development and Gender Affairs, Honourable Gloria Shillingford says the government of Dominica will continue to care for the poor, marginalized and underprivileged citizens of the country.
As a result she says they will continue to undertake several projects that are geared at improving the quality and standard of lives of these individuals, and so, her Ministry will be paying attention to three significant projects, one of which is the construction of a retaining wall for the Grand Fond playing field, that will cost approximately $160,000.00.
This she says will not only ensure the continuity of sporting activities in the community, but will help to develop the youth through sports.
The minister also revealed government’s intention to extend the Housing Revolution Project to other communities across the island that have not yet benefited from the initiative.
One of the communities which will be receiving the much needed housing assistance is La Plaine, after a sum of $45,000.00 was allocated for the provision of housing assistance in the said community.
The minister is also elated that a total of $90,000.00 has been made available to her constituency for the rehabilitation of the Poor Man’s Corner Road in the community of Wesley.
She believes that this project is long overdue since it has been almost forty (40) years since any government has paid attention to this important road.
