USAID is financing the construction of 750 housing units at Caracol-EKAM in the north of Haiti to support efforts by the Government of Haiti (GOH) to provide affordable housing opportunities for families displaced by the 2010 earthquake and other vulnerable households. The development is one of several new housing settlements for which USAID is partnering with the GOH and other sponsors to promote housing opportunities in proximity to employment as well as social and transportation hubs. The project involves close consultation with stakeholders, including community members, local mayors, GOH housing agencies, and the Office of the President of Haiti.
