NHC: Build Our Nation

The current National Housing Corporation is the outcome of the decision of the Government to dissolve the Register of building (RoB) through Act of Parliament No.2 of 1990, which vested its responsibilities with the NHC. The former NHC was established by Act of Parliament No.45 of 1962, while RoB was established by Act No.13 of 1971.
NHC is under the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Settlements Development. The Ministry is represented by the Board of Directors which is responsible for the corporate policies and strategies.
