The Abu Dhabi government has issued new housing policies for its employees, with the aim of strengthening family ties.
According to the new, outstanding policy shared by the Abu Dhabi Media Office on social media, employees of government agencies and companies based in Abu Dhabi will receive special benefits, depending on their employment.
Emirati workers living in Abu Dhabi will receive a full housing allowance based on their employment level while non-Emirati workers who own or rent property in Abu Dhabi are entitled to full housing, according to their level of employment.
In addition, eligible staff will receive an education grant for children attending schools in the emirate, the news office tweeted.
The new policies will take effect after one year to give workers enough time to rectify their situation.
