Whai Kāinga Whai Oranga
Whai Kāinga Whai Oranga is a commitment of $380 million over four years in Budget 2021. The new investment in Māori housing is about accelerating Māori led housing solutions.
This investment will support the government and Māori and iwi working together to support whānau, hapū and iwi through:
- Building new housing that will be a range of papakāinga housing, affordable rentals, transitional housing, and owner-occupied housing.
- Undertaking repairs to Māori owned homes in areas of high housing need – to keep whānau with high housing stress housed while more houses are built and delivered.
- Building the capability of Māori and iwi to accelerate housing projects and provide support services.
Through this investment, the Crown and Māori can build towards a future where Māori increasingly lead and deliver their whānau, hapū and iwi housing aspirations in their own communities and regions.
Support and investment will be delivered through Te Maihi o te Whare Māori – Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation (MAIHI). MAIHI brings Māori and iwi and the Crown together in a working partnership.
