The Home Materials Assistance is a program under the Zamboanga City Roadmap to Recovery and Reconstruction (Z3R) Plan for IDPs whose homes were razed by fire during the Zamboanga siege last September. Beneficiaries must legally own the house and/or land.

Succeeding distribution of home materials assistance will be done once the complete list of landowners is ready and verified.

Conversion of the home materials assistance to cash is prohibited.
