Boma yangu : The government created portal which will allow citizens to register and apply for affordable housing units has gone live.
Bomayangu.go.ke will allow the government to plan the affordable housing program based on needs and data submitted via the portal.
BOMA YANGU REGISTRATION PROCESS
Individuals interested in buying Affordable Houses under AHP will first have to register on the affordable housing portal, either online or on their mobile phones, begin making contributions to the Housing Fund and select their housing preference from the available or upcoming housing stock. Once registered and contributing to the Housing Fund, applicants who qualify will participate in a Regular and Transparent Allocation process for the available houses.
BOMA YANGU APPLICATION REQUIREMENT
All applicants will need to be a citizen of Kenya with a valid national ID number.
HOW WILL BOMA YANGU HOUSING UNITS BE ALLOCATED ?
The houses will be awarded through a fair and transparent system free of any human intervention and contact
Is the allocation system a form of betting?
No, the allocation system is not betting. It is a fair and transparent system that allocates houses to qualified applicants without any human intervention as indicated above. Members will be asked to indicate their preferred location (by county) of a house and will then be provided with information on the type of home they qualify for based on their income, required deposit payments and be provided with information on the projected monthly TPS payments.
Homes will be allocated through a randomised balloting-type allocation system – which means that potential owners will be selected from the waiting list of registered pre-qualified, eligible applicants. Allocation processing will be announced on the Housing Portal and through other communication outlets. Allocation will only be carried out for projects that are going live and will be done upon commencement of the construction.
The weighted pre-qualification criteria will include factors such as income, household status (priority to families), current assets owned, vulnerable groups, accumulated deposit, first come – first serve basis.
With regard to social housing, we will work with settlement executive committees which represent community interests and ensure that those living in the community are beneficiaries. This will entail registration, enumeration and verification of the community members
