He explained, in Tangerang Regency itself, the construction of livable houses, until 2022, has only reached 36.48 percent. He said, for low-income families, the majority of the homes did not meet the standards of house safety rules, especially from disasters. One of the reasons may be due to the lack of public knowledge about the criteria for housing that is livable, safe, and healthy.

He explained that so far the Tangerang Regency Government has implemented the Joint People’s Movement to Overcome Poor Slum Dense Areas (Gebrak Pakumis) program for five years with aims that as many as 13 thousand housing units will be rebuilt into decent houses. “We have carried out this Gebrak Pakumis from 2017 to 2022, and we have built as many as 13 thousand livable housing units with budget sources from the APBD, APBDes, and CSR,” he said. He continued, the Tangerang Regency Government commits to complete the housing development program in its area soon. As one of the parties responsible for the implementation of decent housing and settlements in Tangerang.

“The Tangerang Regency Government hopes that with this guidebook, the community can more easily and freely access information and guidelines in using the APBDes to provide livable houses. “I hope.
