Housing Assistance Programme
The FICS Housing Assistance Programme is a tax-exempt medium-term investment programme which FICS has introduced to respond to the housing needs of young St Lucians. This programme facilitates accumulation of savings for the 10% to 20% deposit required for house construction or house and land purchase and covers a period of five years. Contributions up to $6,000 in any one year, are eligible for tax exemption.

In the event that he/she does not honour any of the monthly commitments FICS will be discharged of this prior undertaking subject to the obligation to refund the total amount contributed to the programme less a fee of $50 to $250 to cover FICS administrative expenses.
