Housing initiatives for citizens in the UAE varied, the first of which was initiated by the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, when he built popular housing for the citizens of the Emirate of Dubai in 1961.

After the sixth of August 1966, the region witnessed a redefinition of the human renaissance, with what the builder father built, since his rule of Abu Dhabi, and the homeland of the desert and the transfer of civilization to the desert. and infrastructure that enabled the birth of an emerging private sector.

The housing initiatives did not stop at these luminous examples of civilized transformations, so specialized institutions and bodies were established in Abu Dhabi, and because some challenges require non-traditional initiatives, we mention one of the former presidents of the Federal National Council, raising the issue of housing challenges for citizens to the Council of Ministers, headed by the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and from him to the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who directed the establishment of the "Zayed Housing Program", which solved the challenges of housing citizens.

The establishment of the Zayed Housing Program came to contribute to redefining resettlement and urban planning in all emirates of the country. During 20 years of giving, it issued more than 67,000 housing support decisions, with a value of more than 17.5 billion dirhams, since its establishment in 1999 until 2019.The approval of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, a few days ago, the housing program for citizens in Dubai, allocating a budget of 65 billion dirhams for the next twenty years, with the immediate quadrupling of the number of beneficiaries of the housing program, Coupled with the allocation of new lands sufficient for citizens to live in for the next twenty years, within an integrated local housing policy supervised by the Empowerment Leader personally, and whose plans His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum are following up, to provide decent housing, again defining That government housing is a right for everyone, and that the citizen comes first, second and third, and that a decent life for the people of the country is the first priority for the work of the government, so that this approach is entrenched in social media accounts with the hashtag “#fifty_projects”; It motivates us to aspire to keep pace with the rest of the national housing programs for this important future planning, to enhance solid social security, and to maintainHigh standing as a global role model in citizen services and welfare. We also look forward to the concerned authorities starting to use smart and big data, changing the rules of grants, considering requests and regulations for land exchange, loans, etc., and modifying them to become proactive, as the government is looking forward. What is the benefit of introducing a category of proactive services within the categories of excellence and its prizes, if the services do not develop, so that the service becomes provided to the beneficiary before it is actually requested, and the most important services are: suitable housing, land, and loans, for those entitled, headed by orphans, widows, divorced women, insolvent people and low-income people, Retirees, and those who do not have a home, or their homes require total maintenance due to obsolescence.What is the benefit of introducing a category of proactive services within the categories of excellence and its prizes, if the services do not develop, so that the service becomes provided to the beneficiary before it is actually requested, and the most important services are: suitable housing, land, and loans, for those entitled, headed by orphans, widows, divorced women, insolvent people and low-income people, Retirees, and those who do not have a home, or their homes require total maintenance due to obsolescence.What is the benefit of introducing a category of proactive services within the categories of excellence and its prizes, if the services do not develop, so that the service becomes provided to the beneficiary before it is actually requested, and the most important services are: suitable housing, land, and loans, for those entitled, headed by orphans, widows, divorced women, insolvent people and low-income people, Retirees, and those who do not have a home, or their homes require total maintenance due to obsolescence.

Also, the concerned authorities’ study of welfare lines, taking into account the disparity in the cost of living, updating the levels of welfare lines locally and federally, making the necessary recommendations, and submitting decisions of loans and housing grants to those entitled without waiting for their request at the doors of the authorities;
