Increasing public housing

We fund and partner in initiatives across the housing sector to deliver more public and transitional housing.

A growing need for public housing

Housing in general is in short supply and rental prices are rising. New Zealand's most vulnerable individuals and families are among those most affected.

Public housing is a vital part of New Zealand's social support system. It provides individuals and families with a warm, dry, safe place to live.

Public Housing is owned or leased by Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities or community housing providers, and is tenanted by people who are eligible.
