Organisations can access the Progressive Home Ownership Fund (PHO) to establish or expand their progressive home ownership programmes through two dedicated pathways.
The Provider pathway enables organisations to access funding for their progressive home ownership programmes to help individuals, families and whānau in their communities achieve independent home ownership.
We are now inviting submissions from PHO providers to participate in the Provider pathway of the PHO Fund. This funding round opened on Thursday 20 January and closes on Wednesday 2 March 2022.
Funding rounds for 2022 will open between the following dates:
- 20 January – 2 March
- 6 April – 17 May
- 4 July – 5 August
- 12 September – 14 October.
Organisations wishing to participate in the Provider pathway can contact the PHO Team for information about future funding rounds by emailing PHO@hud.govt.nz.
Te Au Taketake
Te Au Taketake (Iwi and Māori pathway) provides dedicated funding for Iwi and Māori organisations to develop or expand their progressive home ownership programmes, supporting better housing outcomes for whānau Māori.
We will work with Iwi and Māori organisations through Te MAIHI o te Whare Māori the Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation (MAIHI) Framework for Action to enable them to support more whānau Māori into home ownership.
Te Au Taketake means organisations can take a flexible approach to developing and delivering bespoke progressive home ownership solutions for whānau Māori.
Iwi and Māori organisations can choose to respond to the Invitation to Participate in Te Au Taketake or the Invitation to Participate in the Provider pathway.
They can respond to the Invitation to Participate in Te Au Taketake at any time, rather than during funding rounds offered through the Provider pathway.
We will work closely with Iwi and Māori organisations on a case-by-case basis throughout the process of submitting their proposal and becoming an approved PHO provider.
Iwi and Māori organisations can contact us to discuss their progressive home ownership aspirations and request a copy of the Invitation to Participate in Te Au Taketake by emailing PHO@hud.govt.nz.
