The current housing deficit in Guatemala is estimated at 1.7 million, and the plan is to resolve this by Government led construction of houses using the Guatemalan Housing Fund (FOGUAVI), which has a budget of about $58 million a year for real estate projects.

The announced policy includes programs for the provision of 18,000 housing subsidies and another 6,000 for a program called "safe floors", which will provide cement for homes which have dirt floors.
