Fishermen’s Housing Special Project

The Fishermen’s Housing Special Project (PKPN) is an aid given to low-income fishermen to repair and build new houses. This project will also develop the resettlement of fishermen for the well-being of fisherfolks in enjoying a better and comfortable quality of life.


The three (3) main components of the Fishermen’s Housing Special Project are as follows:

  • Fishermen’s House Repair Works
  • Build New Fishermen’s Houses
  • Resettlement of Fishermen’s Houses

Fishermen’s House Repair Works

Starting in 2020, repair works for fishermen’s houses is carried out by mutual cooperation (gotong-royong) involving the target group and by appointing a contractor. LKIM encourages the implementation of mutual cooperation in order to foster the value of consensus and the spirit of cooperation in carrying out repair works and construction of new fishermen’s houses. In an effort to ensure the successful implementation of this programme, the relevant Regional Fishermen’s Association (PNK) has been appointed as the Project Leader based on approval from the Ministry of Finance Malaysia. The maximum cost for this programme is as follows:
