First Home Grant - 22 May 2024

The purpose of this page is to assist applicants who submitted a First Home Grant application before 1pm, 22 May 2024. At the direction of the Government, we are unable to accept any new applications for First Home Grants. All applications lodged before then will continue to be processed and we will be in touch with customers about their applications when needed.  

If you’ve been contributing to your KiwiSaver for at least three years, you may be eligible for a First Home Grant. How much you receive depends on things like your income and the type of home you want to buy.

You can apply either before you find a property or after you have had an offer accepted, but we strongly recommend you apply for pre-approval. It takes the guess work out and helps speed up the process.
