In 2013, the Prime Minister issued Decision No. 22/2013/QD-TTg on housing support for revolution contributors, with 40 million VND (over 1,700 USD) for house construction and 20 million VND for house repair.

Surveys show that Hoa Binh has more than 5,800 people eligible for the support. In 2018, the province received all the financial aid, over 140 billion VND in total, to allocate to its localities.

Cao Phong is one of the districts with the biggest number of revolution contributors to benefit from the Prime Minister’s decision.

Nguyen Thanh Nam, a cadre at the district’s labour, invalids and social affairs division, said according to initial survey results, there were 1,061 households eligible for the support, totaling over 23 billion VND, in Cao Phong. Among them, 292 households were subject to construction aid and the rest, repair assistance. Between 2013 and 2017, 10 households were supported with 340 million VND.

The district’s authorities provided the assistance for 150 households. They are working actively to complete the work this year, Nam noted.
