As per the announcement by Wam, the comprehensive package is set to positively impact over 5,685 individuals in the emirate, with a primary focus on housing loans of all kinds valued at AED 6 billion. Notably, 3,714 UAE citizens have already benefited from these housing loans, demonstrating the commitment to providing accessible housing options.

For low-income retirees and the families of those who passed away in 2023, a compassionate approach has been adopted, exempting them from the obligation to repay their loans. This empathetic measure reflects the leadership’s dedication to supporting citizens during challenging times.

A dedicated portion of over AED 573 million from the package has been allocated to benefit 549 Emiratis, showcasing the inclusivity of the initiative. Further, 1,422 UAE nationals have received residential lands and ready-made houses valued at over AED 950 million, which includes funding for essential infrastructure projects supporting these residential areas.

In total, 9,292 UAE citizens stand to benefit from this housing package, elevating the cumulative value of housing benefits distributed in Abu Dhabi for the year 2023 to an impressive AED 13.44 billion. This underscores the commitment of the government to fostering happiness, comfort, and family stability for UAE families.
