Partner with us

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

The model promotes a collaborative approach to:

  • delivering better outcomes for New Zealanders, and
  • encouraging partnerships with other agencies and providers, with a focus on increasing public and transitional housing supply.

With this model, we aim to increase the supply of housing, support people with services to help them sustain suitable housing, and build better lives.

As a result of this new model, we'll be:

  • making changes to how projects are funded
  • providing a contracting framework, based on a relationship agreement
  • offering a two-stage ('gateway') procurement process.

Becoming a partner

Our procurement process, which involves a Partnership Gateway and a Project Gateway, has been designed to establish a broad base of supply capability and capacity.
