Public housing reports

Stay informed about our progress, housing developments, and the direction of Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga - Ministry of Housing and Urban Development's public housing supply.

We produce a series of resources that track our progress against our targets.

Here are the most recent quarterly reports, regional factsheets, and monthly updates. Find past years' reports on our public housing reports archive page.

Public housing quarterly reports

The housing quarterly report tracks progress, and shares data on:

  • public housing and transitional housing supply
  • homelessness programmes, and
  • other housing support.

Each housing quarterly report provides us, and the housing sector with a clearer picture about:

  • the people who need warm, safe, and sustainable housing, and
  • the movement of people through the public housing system.

Public housing regional factsheet

The housing regional factsheets provide a closer look at housing in New Zealand’s regions. The factsheets complement the housing quarterly report.

Each factsheet provides the housing sector with a localised view of:

  • the progress we’re making to bring on additional supply, and
  • how we support people with their housing and accommodation.

Public housing monthly updates

We produce monthly updates as a regular indicative pulse-check on public housing in New Zealand. The monthly dashboard is a subset of the information provided in the quarterly reports.

This includes details about:

  • applications on the Housing Register
  • the supply of Public and Transitional Housing, and
  • people receiving housing related assistance.

The monthly update also keeps track of the progress being made to deliver around 6,400 more public housing places by June 2022. About 1,600 places each year on average will be delivered by Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities and Community Housing Providers.

Public Housing Plan

The Public Housing Plan sets out the Government’s public housing supply intentions for the next four years.
