The National Upgrading Support Programme (NUSP) was created by the National Department of Human Settlements (NDHS) to provide assistance to provinces and municipalities in their efforts to upgrade informal settlements. NUSP newsletters are being issued every second month to keep stakeholders informed about the programme, as well as informal settlement upgrade projects and issues. The newsletter is being produced in partnership with the HDA and will be published every two months.

The HDA is an important partner in providing technical support for upgrading under the coordination of the NUSP. The provision of specific informal settlement upgrading support is defined in the HDA Act as one of the Agency’s functions.
