About Housing New Zealand

Housing New Zealand Corporation is a Crown agent that provides housing services for people in need. It isn't just about getting a roof over people's heads - we also work closely with others to ensure our tenants have access to good support services.

On 1st October 2019, Housing New Zealand Corporation becomes part of Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities.

About Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities

Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities is central to the Government's aspirations for housing and urban development. It will work across the housing spectrum to build thriving communities where everyone has a place to call home.

This new organisation will have two key roles: being a public housing landlord, and partnering with the development community, iwi, and local and central government to deliver urban development projects of all sizes.

The anticipated start date for this new organisation is 1st October 2019.
