Facilitate the creation of sustainable human settlements and the improvement to household quality of life.
The Department of Human Settlements derives its core mandate and responsibilities from section 26 of the Constitution and section 3 of the Housing Act (1997), read in with conjunction approved policies and chapter 8 of the National Development Plan (NDP). This allows the department, in collaboration with provinces and municipalities, to establish and facilitate a sustainable national housing development process and related interventions. The department does this by: determining national policy and national norms and standards for housing and human settlements development; setting broad national housing delivery goals; providing funding to provinces and metropolitan cities; and monitoring the financial and non-financial performance of provinces and municipalities against these goals. In executing these roles and responsibilities, the department also builds capacity for provinces and municipalities; and promotes consultation with all stakeholders in the housing delivery chain, including other sector departments, civil society and the private sector.
