Affordable Housing Projects (Rumah Mampu Milik) in Penang

Start here

As part of the effort to provide housing to the population of Penang, the State Government has established the Affordable Housing Scheme also known as Rumah Mempu Milik. It is one of two types of housing schemes by the State Government, the other being the People's Housing Project. (For details, read Penang State Government's Housing Schemes) These are located mostly on Penang Island, with a few also at Penang Mainland. On this page, I try to show all the affordable housing projects that I have come across, and will add to this page from time to time.
