Another 20 were being trained through the national Home Builders Registration Council. From the R397,6 million budget allocation more than R127,7 million would be used to build 4 000 houses, in various informal settlements across the province. R212 million will be spent on 7 200 units in rural areas. R22,35 million on 700 units in urban areas and R 31,92 million on 1 000 units. 1,5% of the total housing allocation was set aside for emergency housing. Sanitation systems in six old project linked housing programmes would be rehabilitated at a cost of R8 million.
