The CPI(M)-led Kerala government, which completed 100 days in office, has envisaged a complete rehabilitation package for the homeless in the next five years through a comprehensive housing scheme, expected to directly benefit over 4.70 lakh families. 

The recently announced project titled "Project LIFE" (Livelihood, Inclusion, Financial Empowerment) expects not just giving a roof for those who do not have houses, but also a complete rehabilitation package for the homeless and landless in the state.
