  1. Poor Antiguans. When they’re done giving away all the prime lands in the country to friends, the chinese and whomever else, they are calling us for the dregs. No doubt these are low line, water logged areas, or areas with no roads, electricity or water already installed. I don’t know what else will wake up the people of this country.

  2. Hi good day my name is vannessa Holder I make 1600 and I’m very much interested in getting a pice of land to build a home

    • Vannessa Holder, I hope you be successful. I have applied at CHAPA 3 times. First in 1985 and I was not successful. I had my child that same year. Five years after my child was born in 1990 I applied again and I was unsuccessful. In 2006, I applied again and I was still unsuccessful. When I saw people come from all around the world (starting from our Caribbean neighboring islands) and got Antigua crown (government) lands to buy, I cried. I pray Almighty God that I am successful this time around.
      Yes, I did a lot of following up on my applications at CHAPA. The first two applications, they could not find them, so I had to applied back in 2005. Since then I have told very time I goes to CHAPA that no lands is available. One time, one male employee saw me outside of CHAPA and said to me, “you got through?” I told him no and then he turned and said “it is better you go squatting on a piece of government crown land in your area because that is what the foreigners and some Antiguans are doing.” I hope and pray that those of us, who are still alive, that have been trying for the pass 36 years get the opportunity to finally purchase and own a piece of government crown land be successful.

  3. What about all the applications that born Antiguans and Barbudans have at CHAPA for years? Would those applications be considered as part of the “Applications open for $3 per square-foot land” program? I am wondering how many native will be successful this time around?
