Te Kāhui Kāinga Ora – a dedicated Māori housing group

Māori are disproportionately impacted by the housing crisis and have been for generations. Aotearoa needs large-scale change, with a specific focus on Māori housing, across the housing system.

Te Kāhui Kāinga Ora is our Māori housing group, which exists to provide strong, coordinated leadership and programmes across government. We’re working to advance Māori housing outcomes, in partnership with:

  • Whānau, hapū and iwi
  • Te Puni Kōkiri
  • Kāinga Ora
  • Other agencies across the housing system.

This collaborative approach has led to developing the MAIHI - Framework for Action and the MAIHI Partnerships Programme.
