About MAIHI Ka Ora, Ka Mārama - Māori Housing Dashboard

MAIHI Ka Ora, Ka Mārama, the Māori Housing Dashboard, provides access to consistent, reliable data to support whānau, hapū, iwi and Māori organisations when they make decisions about housing. It also shows the progress that’s being made in achieving safe, healthy, affordable homes with secure tenure for whānau across the Māori housing continuum.

The story behind the numbers

Māori have been disproportionately affected by the housing crisis and there are critical gaps for Māori in the housing system. We’re changing the housing system to achieve better housing outcomes for Māori.

 Te Maihi o te Whare Māori – Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation (MAIHI) puts Māori at the heart of Aotearoa’s housing approach.

We’re working to:

  • respond quickly to the immediate and urgent housing needs of whānau
  • 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.
