Working with us
We work with many groups in the community – from those we work with on new housing developments through to community groups we work with for the benefit of our tenants.
It’s time to change. Housing more New Zealanders means we have to think differently to deliver quality state homes, at a faster rate, and with better outcomes for our customers, the communities in which we work, and the wider construction industry.
The loan scheme will help unit owner-occupiers in residential earthquake prone buildings, in areas of high seismic risk, facing hardship over earthquake strengthening costs.
To ensure Kāinga Ora can continue to scale up the delivery of warm and dry state homes, we have established our own Building Consent Authority.
Kāinga Ora invests in a range of programmes to meet the housing needs of New Zealanders. Our biggest contributions are through the provision of public and supported housing, followed by the supply of affordable homes and land for market housing.
Construction intentions for the new public and supported homes Kāinga Ora is planning to build from 2021-2024 by region, housing type and delivery status. This data includes the new homes Kāinga Ora purchases from the market.
Helping provide residential and non residential community housing.
We partner with communities to understand how best to meet urban development, renewal and housing needs, and inform residents and stakeholders at every stage of our development plans.
Under the Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Act 2019 we have been given the mandate to do things differently – working alongside others for better shared outcomes, asking people to come into our decision making, and doing things with people, not ‘to them’.
There’s a new pathway for complex urban development projects in New Zealand.
Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities is a Crown entity. It invites Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified property development organisations for appointment to projects.
It’s important to understand the different roles that Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities and the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) have in the provision of public housing.
From time to time, Kāinga Ora will lease a property to meet demand for suitable houses in certain areas.
The Government introduced the Housing Innovation Fund (HIF) in 2003 to support the growth of third sector social housing in New Zealand.
