NUSP newsletter, brochures and website
The National Upgrading Support Programme (NUSP) was created by the Department of Human Settlements (NDHS) to provide assistance to provinces and municipalities in their efforts to upgrade informal settlements.
The first NUSP newsletter has been issued by NDHS with the support of the HDA to keep stakeholders informed about the programme, as well as informal settlement upgrade projects and issues.
The newsletter will be published every two months. The HDA has also produced an information brochure for NUSP and is in the process of upgrading the NUSP website for the NDHS.
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.
