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.
Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities is always looking for suppliers who are innovative, reliable and cost effective.
The Housing Acceleration Fund aims to increase the pace and scale of housing supply, and improve affordability of homes for low- to moderate- income households.
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.
Supported Housing brings together publicly funded housing with support services that are essential to the wellbeing of people and whānau living in the home.
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’.
The Urban Development Act 2020 empowers Kāinga Ora to initiate, facilitate, and undertake urban development that contributes to sustainable, inclusive, and thriving communities.
Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities is a Crown entity. It invites Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified property development organisations for appointment to projects.
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.
