Resolution No. 767, S. 2004

Accrediting Projects of Non-Governmental Organizations and Foundations Engaged in Community Development for the Under-Privileged and Homeless Sector as Compliance to the 20% Socialized Housing Requirement under Section 18 of RA 7279

WHEREAS, the Board is committed to fast track the production of housing most especially to the poorest of the poor of our citizens;

WHEREAS, this commitment has been eloquently demonstrated by the Board by its approval of joint venture schemes as mode of compliance to Section 18 of RA 7279, namely; the purchase of socialized housing bonds of the Home Development Mutual Fund, HLGC Zero Coupon Bonds and HGC Special Series Bonds by the owner-developer of main project under Board Resolution No. R-660, Resolution No. R-721, all series of 2000 and Resolution No. 739 series of 2003;

WHEREAS, non-governmental and non-profit organizations and foundations engaged in community development for the under-privileged and the homeless sector has identified shelter as one of its major components by the production of inexpensive houses, tapping the bayanihan spirit, while giving the poor beneficiaries the opportunity to work together, for this purpose in partnership with corporations, universities, civic groups and government agencies in uplifting their status in life;

WHEREAS, these non-governmental and non-profit organizations and foundations had attained over the years a track record of building "7,000 homes in 280 communities" through the generosity of its partners in the country and abroad and had launched in October 2003 GK 777-the vision of building 700,000 homes in 7,000 communities in the seven (7) years;

WHEREAS, accrediting the projects of these non-governmental and non-profit organizations and foundations to be eligible as compliance to the requirement of Section 18 of RA 7279 will afford opportunities for them to increase their capacity in the actual production of housing units to complement the goal of government for mass housing;

WHEREAS, these non-governmental and non-profit organizations and foundations intend to enter into a joint venture agreement or memorandum agreement with commercial developers willing to provide land or funds for housing and/or site development and in return non-governmental and non-profit organizations and foundations will assign the credits to the developer as compliance to Section 18 of RA 7279;

WHEREFORE, be it resolved as it is hereby resolved that the pertinent portions of Section 3, Mode of Compliance, of the Rules and Regulations Implementing Section 18 of Republic Act No. 7279, be amended, as the same are HEREBY AMENDED, to read as follows (amendments all in capital letters):
