Underprivileged districts

Minister Vogelaar of housing, Communities and Integration selected forty ‘problem districts’ which are underprivileged in terms of housing, employment, integration and security. Government policy for the next ten years aims to improve the living conditions in these districts. To do more justice to the positive aspects of the districts, the term ‘focus districts’ is used instead of ‘problem districts’. The districts are all located in strongly and extremely urbanised areas.
