The Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Hous­ing Wel­fare (PAHW) has an­nounced that the wait­ing list of the state hous­ing ap­pli­cants has shrank in the third quar­ter of 2016 to 103,000, Kuwait Fi­nance House (KFH) said. Ac­cord­ing to the coun­try’s plan, the Kuwaiti gov­ern­ment aims to build 36,000 units by 2017, KFH’s said in its quar­terly re­port on PAHW’s hous­ing projects dur­ing the third quar­ter. The PAHW has a num­ber of projects for new res­i­den­tial cities to re­solve the hous­ing prob­lem and meet the grow­ing de­mand for the state hous­ing units. State hous­ing units are built as per strict tech­ni­cal stan­dards set by the PAHW, the re­port said. The re­port es­ti­mated that the num­ber of hous­ing ap­pli­ca­tions sub­mit­ted since the start of the year, at 4,725. It added that the PAHW has dis­trib­uted 2,413 units in the 12 sub­urb of South Mutla city project in ac­cor­dance with the al­lot­ments sched­ule pro­posed for the cur­rent fis­cal year.
