South Africa’s National Upgrading Support Programme (NUSP)
the National Upgrading Support Program: Securing South Africa's Urban Future

The National Upgrading Support Program aims to close the “urban divide” created by apartheid, which left 10 million ethnic groups living in inhumane conditions.

More than one million families are still living in substandard housing areas, which is being addressed by a more comprehensive program that moves beyond providing housing.
