MAIHI Ka Ora - National Māori housing strategy

MAIHI Ka Ora, the National Māori Housing strategy, has a shared vision that “all whānau have safe, healthy, affordable homes with secure tenure, across the Māori housing continuum.”

The strategy takes Te Maihi o te Whare Māori – Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation Framework for Action (MAIHI) which drives a whole of system approach and elevates it to provide the strategic direction for the whole Māori housing system.

MAIHI Ka Ora has been developed in partnership with Māori.

Together we have identified the immediate and short term challenges facing Māori housing we need to address key priority areas.

The total Māori housing problem can be broken into six major components.

They are:

  1. Māori Crown Partnerships
  2. Māori-led Local Solutions
  3. Māori Housing Supply
  4. Māori Housing Support
  5. Māori Housing System
  6. Māori Housing Sustainability

Using the MAIHI framework, and through a genuine partnership we plan to met these shared challenges through the respond, review, reset framework.

This is the first phase of work, The second phase builds on this foundation document, and in partnership with Māori looks to develop a detailed implementation plan. This work will be completed by the end of the year.
