The Housing Department at the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor, and Social Affairs (MADLSA)  allows individuals to avail of housing benefits for various applications. ​​​​​​​​The Citizens Housing Department, for instance, is responsible for implementing the various provisions of the laws, regulations, and decisions that duly pertain to the proposals, the housings, and the implementation of decisions on citizen housing. It is in charge of coordinating with various branches of government as well as of cooperating with government authorities to ensure that all provisions are duly accomplished. The department is also in charge of receiving and reviewing the requests made by Qatari citizens to utilize the housing system.

Furthermore, the department has the authority to take the necessary actions needed to process these requests in accordance with provisions of the law. In line with this, complaints that are received relating to housing are duly addressed, and the department tirelessly works to settle these complaints for all parties involved.
