Māori Housing Network

Across the motu, whānau, hapū and iwi Māori are planning, funding and implementing successful housing initiatives.

The Māori Housing Network has been set up to support the energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurship in the Māori housing sector with information, advice and practical support to build capability. The Network also manages funds to support projects to improve housing outcomes for whānau Māori. The funding focus is on smaller scale projects that:

  • improve the quality of housing
  • build capability and capacity in the sector, and
  • increase the supply of affordable housing.

Whatever your housing need, we want to help. When you are ready to discuss what you want to do, get in touch with your local Te Puni Kōkiri office to arrange a meeting with the Māori Housing Network Regional Advisor.
