      Kiryat Gat "Roof Agreement" Signed

      Treasurer Ya'ir Lapid, Housing Minister Uri Ariel and Manager Bentzi Lieberman of the Israel Lands Authority signed an agreement with Mayor Aviram Dahari of Kiryat Gat, in the southern part of central Israel, Thursday, which promises the accelerated marketing of 7,000 dwelling units in the city's "green" Carmei Gat neighborhood over the next two years.

      Similar agreements to put roofs over the heads of people are expected to be signed in the coming months in the Haifa suburb of Kiryat Bialik, Modi'in - halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv - and the Tel Aviv suburb of Rosh Ha'ayin to provide more than 37,000 units in high-demand areas. The agreements join other programs of the Lands Authority and the housing cabinet to lower the price of housing.
