Organisations can access the Progressive Home Ownership Fund (PHO) to establish or expand their progressive home ownership programmes through two dedicated pathways.
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 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.
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.
An Invitation to Participate in the Provider pathway of the PHO Fund will be released up to four times per year, for five weeks each time.
Submissions for the first Invitation to Participate in the Provider pathway closed in June 2021.
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.
