The Welfare Department is in the process of creating a national registry of landlords and properties used for rental to vulnerable clients.
Chief Welfare Officer, Deborah Norville, explained that the aim was to utilise the registry to make electronic payments to landlords, in keeping with Government’s digitisation project.
“The registry will also allow us to easily reference places available for rent in quick time during a client crisis situation,” she added.
The Department is therefore inviting all landlords who currently conduct business with the agency to update and return their property and payment information to the Chief Welfare Officer by Wednesday, September 30. New landlords interested in partnering with the department to provide rental properties are advised to register by calling the Senior Accountant at 535-1008, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
