OverviewThe mission of the National Urban Reconstruction and Housing Agency (NURCHA) is to initiate programmes and take considered risks to ensure a sustainable flow of finance for the construction of low-income and affordable housing, community facilities and infrastructure. NURCHA works in partnership with all role-players in these markets to maximise the development of sustainable human settlements.
In fulfilling its mission of releasing finance for housing and related infrastructure, NURCHA seeks to act in a manner that maximises the developmental impact of its work. As it implements its programmes, it tests them against its development principles, which are to: extend the housing market; maximise options for the construction and financing of housing and related facilities and infrastructure; promote synergy and cooperation between public and private sectors; and use NURCHA loans to contribute to the emergence of a new generation of successful, black-owned construction companies.
