Gov’t launches online tool for transitional housing applications
Applicants can select their preferred projects on the platform.
The Housing Bureau has launched a tool that will ease tenancy applications in the city.
Called the “TH-E,” the tool intends to facilitate online applications for transitional housing.
“Applicants can also now upload and submit a completed central common application form directly through the 'TH-E' platform,” the bureau said.
Interested applicants will only need to share basic information like their name, phone number and identity card number in the platform. Applicants can also select their preferred projects.
“After applying online, applicants will immediately receive an SMS confirmation containing a reference number for future enquiries about the progress of their application,” the bureau said.
“The platform will automatically refer applications to operating organisations for follow-up. Data collection, compilation and analysis capabilities will be added to the platform’s functionality in the future,” the bureau added.
