What will be the average cost for the various housing Units upon completion? Prices of the National Affordable Housing Project in Ghana and Payment plan
The government has subsidized the cost of the houses through the provision of land and on-site infrastructure to make the units affordable.
To ensure the subsidy is transferred to buyers of the housing units, Government has worked with
the developers to agree on price ceiling for the various housing units.
Developers cannot sell above the agreed price ceiling but they can sell below the agreed price ceiling.

financing to eligible buyers.
Interested buyers can make private mortgage arrangements with their banks.
