Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, has inaugurated Iskan Abu Dhabi, a new housing ‘one-stop shop’ that offers all governmental housing services for citizens from a single location at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

The centre offers support and guidance to citizens, making it easier to find a high-quality home that best suits their needs.


Following the inauguration, Sheikh Khaled reviewed the available services, which include housing grants, loans, loan exemptions, exchange services, and plot purchasing. Additionally, he reviewed the services offered by strategic partners including the Department of Municipalities and Transport, First Abu Dhabi Bank, Teyaseer and Abu Dhabi School of Government.

The launch of Iskan Abu Dhabi follows the recently updated housing benefits policy, which supports low-income citizens through increased housing loans, free-of-charge grants for ready-built homes, and waivers for monthly instalment payments, regardless of the date of housing loan approval, as well as exemptions for senior citizens from repaying their housing loan.


“Abu Dhabi’s leadership is committed to launching initiatives that enhance quality of life, ensure families’ stability, and strengthen community cohesion by providing citizens with high-quality homes in connected communities across Abu Dhabi,” said Mohamed Ali Al Shorafa, Chairman of the Department of Municipalities and Transport and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority.

Iskan Abu Dhabi’s services are complemented through the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority’s digital app, which initially allows users in the first phase, with pre-approved applications, to complete their housing journey.

“Iskan Abu Dhabi streamlines the housing journey, enabling citizens to access housing benefits that meet their needs in the most user-friendly and comprehensive way, from a single location,” Al Shorafa added.
