The Government Aided Self-Help Housing Programme (GASHHP) is an affordable, and high quality housing initiative.  

Citizens with land and without land will benefit from high quality housing. These applicants can access funding from a financial institution of their choice. 

Those without land will have access to fully developed lots supported by subsidised interest rate mortgage loans from the Trinidad and Tobago Mortgage Finance Company (TTMF), as well as pre-approved house plans, technical assistance and oversight for the construction of affordable houses. Persons already in possession of land approved for residential use, who may require subsidised financing and technical support, are also included under the programme.
