Those who receive homes via the 'Grama Shakthi' project will also be eligible for livelihood development programmes.

The Ministry went on to state that this programme had been expanded to cover all Districts and Divisional Secretariats in the island and would include all those who are below the poverty line and reside in slums and temporary shelters. A grant of
Rs 500,000 will also be given to those who do not have the means to enter the 'Uda Gammana' loan schemes and that they will also be involved in the development programme.
