Housing Security: A Happy Home for the Poor

 Housing Security: A Happy Home for the Poor

CCTV News Network (News Broadcast): Let all the people live somewhere. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that housing is not only a livelihood issue but also a development issue, which concerns the vital interests of millions of households, the peoples well-being, the overall situation of economic and social development, and social harmony and stability.

Since the Eighteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the scope of housing security has been expanding. The precise security for key groups, such as sanitation workers and bus drivers, has enabled more people in need not only to have security houses, but also to have happy families.

More than four oclock in the morning, the day of Huangfeng has begun. Hes going to collect garbage in four neighborhoods around him. He was proud to mention the job.

In 1996, Huang Feng and his wife came to Changzhou from Taihe County, Anhui Province, to work as sanitation workers. In order to have a place to settle down, they can only squeeze into a small room with three other families and separate their living areas by simple curtains. Not only that, but they also face the dilemma that they may have no room to live because of demolition at any time, which makes the couple have the idea of leaving here.

According to this policy, the Huangfeng family with two children applied for a two-bedroom public rental house with a monthly rent of more than 170 yuan, which made them very excited.

It is precisely in order to make the front-line workers in these public service industries more happy and secure. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the indemnificatory housing has gradually tilted to the front-line workers at the grass-roots level. Directional rent allocation has been carried out for the workers with housing difficulties, such as sanitation workers and bus drivers, so as to improve the accuracy of security. To this end, local governments have introduced targeted safeguard policies in accordance with local conditions:

In Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province, the government further lowered the threshold of public rental housing for public transport and sanitation workers, shortened the period of examination and approval from one and a half months to half months, and exempted them from rental bonds and other costs for public rental housing.

In Xiamen, Fujian, 14162 dormitory-type housing sources have been raised, which can provide physical protection for 17372 front-line workers.

At present, the housing problems of 160,000 sanitation workers, 70,000 bus drivers, 130,000 families with special family planning difficulties and 40,000 volunteers have been solved nationwide.

At the same time, for new citizens in other industries, the coverage of housing security is also further expanded. By the end of 2018, more than 8.1 million migrant workers with stable employment had been guaranteed public rental housing, which provided new citizens with warm homes.

In the future, China will continue to improve the housing security system, expand the scope of housing security, and make the people living in poverty more stable and happy at the same time.
