Accounting firm Ernst and Young will monitor the historic drawing of 500 serviced house lots — for which the short listing begins today — under Government’s Land for the Landless programme. A pre-drawing of a shortlist of 10,000 applicants from a total of 41,000 in the Land for the Landless programme will take place at the Land Settlement Agency (LSA) head office at Orange Grove Road South, Tacarigua.

A release issued yesterday from the Ministry of Housing, Land and Marine Resources said representatives of Ernst and Young have been in discussions with the LSA “providing guidance and support for the process, to maintain transparency at all steps of the draw.”

Each applicant, the release said, “was scored up to a maximum of 14 points based on factors such as family size and composition, income and disability.”

Based on the criteria, the release said that 10,000 of the highest scoring applicants will be involved in today’s pre-draw after which 500 will be manually pulled in a public drawing.

Following today’s pre-draw Ernst and Young will take possession of the 10,000 eligible applications for the final draw which will take place on May 21 at the Southern Academy of the Performing Arts, San Fernando. Ernst and Young will supervise the final draw.

After Tuesday’s draw, the LSA will further verify the information provided before the house lot is offered to the successful applicant.

On May 3, Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal told the media that initially the house lots will be given out at Milton in Couva, San Fernando and Cashew Gardens in central Trinidad. Other areas being developed for house lots, he said, are in Central Trinidad and Orange Grove.

The programme, launched on November 27, 2012, is aimed at addressing the existing housing problem by offering serviced lots at an affordable price to families, to build their own homes based on the availability of their resources. It aims to also relocate “eligible squatters.”
