Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino Housing (4PH) Program for Filipinos

Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino Housing (4PH) Program is one of the primary projects of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. This program aims to create around 1.7 million employment and 6 million housing units annually between 2023 and 2028. 25 locations around the country have witnessed the program’s launch. The program will also provide more than a million homes to Filipino citizens of this country.

To guarantee the 4PH program’s successful execution, the President ordered all National Government Agencies (NGAs), Local Government Units (LGUs), and other government organizations to support and collaborate with the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD.)

As of June 30, DHSUD had memorandums of agreement with 155 LGUs nationwide and had started construction on 28 housing projects. As the principal government agency in charge of managing housing and human settlements across the country, the DHSUD will take the lead in putting 4PH into reality.
