Local whānau with urgent housing needs are set to benefit from new housing in Northland and the trial of an innovative rent-to-own scheme.
Warm, dry and safe housing is vital for the future of whānau development.
The new Ōtangarei Papakāinga Limited development will provide transitional homes for up to sixteen Northland families a year, while they receive support to secure a longer-term place to live and rebuild their futures.
We also announced the we are supporting He Korowai Trust’s project to test an affordable rent-to-own home ownership model that enables whānau to not just put a roof over their heads, but eventually own it.
All these initiatives showcase the success that is possible when Government, rōpū and the wider community can work together and combine expertise and resources to build homes to shelter whanau.
