Partnerships and funding
We work with community housing providers, developers, social services, Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities, iwi, councils and others to fund and deliver more:
- public housing
- transitional housing, and
- services to prevent and reduce homelessness
- initiatives that build the capability of iwi and Māori housing providers to improve the delivery of kaupapa Māori approaches to support people facing homelessness.
Partner with us
HUD uses a strategic partnership model to guide how we partner with other agencies and housing providers to meet demand for public and transitional housing.
