ABSTRACT
Social housing program was one of the government's actions to address the increasing informal settlement problem. Because of poverty, many people were not able to acquire even a small house which they can call their own, thus, pushing them to go informal settlement. The social housing program of the government aims to provide convenient housing to homeless people; this is in view of relocating informal settlers into a safer avenue to protect them from future disasters. This research mainly aimed to determine the level of implementation of the Social Housing Program policies in Barangay Sto. Niño, Tugbok District, one of the relocation sites of the local government of Davao City. This study used the method of descriptive research with the use of survey questionnaire. The respondents were the beneficiaries of the program, and were selected in a simplified cluster sampling with a total of 300 respondents. In general context, the result of this study revealed that most of the beneficiaries of Social Housing Program in Barangay Sto. Niño are experiencing convenient living prior to the proper implementation of the policies by the barangay officials.
