The four main components of MAIHI are:
MAIHI Framework for Action
Te Maihi o te Whare Māori – Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation (MAIHI) puts Māori at the heart of the Aotearoa New Zealand's housing narrative, acknowledges the history of Māori housing and responds to these needs through kaupapa Māori approaches.
MAIHI Ka Ora - the National Māori Housing Strategy
MAIHI Ka Ora – the National Māori Housing Strategy – elevates the Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation (MAIHI) Framework for Action, providing a strategic direction that puts Māori at the heart of Aotearoa New Zealand's housing system.
MAIHI Implementation Plan
While MAIHI Ka Ora sets the vision for Māori Housing for the next 30 years, the Implementation Plans span three to four years. Its purpose is to take us a step closer to the MAIHI Ka Ora overall vision.
MAIHI Partnerships Programme
The MAIHI Partnership Programme makes it easier for hapū, iwi, and Māori housing providers to find and access the support that’s available from different government agencies for Māori-led housing projects.
Te Maihi o te Whare Māori – Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation (MAIHI)
Te Mauri o te whānau - Our principles
Whai Kāinga. Homes, not just houses.
The MAIHI Framework for Action recognises that a home is more than a house, it’s the foundation for wellbeing, prosperity and being able to live with dignity. The vision for MAIHI vision is that all whānau have:
- access to warm, dry and safe homes, with the security of being able to stay in them for as long as is appropriate for their circumstances
- connections to the services they need to be able to sustain their housing
- opportunities to fully participate in their communities.
Looking at both immediate needs and long-term solutions
There are critical gaps for Māori in current mainstream housing solutions. MAIHI Framework for Action includes three key workstreams to:
- Respond quickly to the immediate and urgent needs of whānau who are experiencing homelessness and housing stress.
- Review current Crown policies and programmes to see what’s blocking solutions to Māori housing issues.
- Reset systems and processes so the housing system provides fair and equitable solutions for Māori, by:
- partnering with Māori on how solutions are designed and carried out
- making sure that Te Tiriti o Waitangi obligations and settlements are upheld, past injustices are not repeated, and a contemporary Treaty partnership is set up so Māori can lead their housing solutions.
