The Updated Public Housing Plan: Including 2024 -2025 delivery outlines the Government’s public housing supply intentions for the 3,000 additional public housing places that were committed to as part of Budget 23 funding.

The Updated Public Housing Plan: Including 2024 - 2025 delivery is an extension of the Public Housing Plan 2021-2024 and builds on the earlier 2018 – 2022 Public Housing Plan.

The Updated Public Housing Plan focuses on increasing delivery across Aotearoa New Zealand’s regions compared to major metropolitan centres which have seen strong public housing delivery to date. It is now available on the Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga – Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) website.

Delivery of public housing

Public housing provides individuals and whānau with a warm, dry, safe place to live.

Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities will deliver most of the new public housing in the update.

Delivery continues to be supported by Community Housing Providers and iwi and Māori partners who will complement Kāinga Ora and build public housing where they are better placed to do so, particularly in some regions.  

Community housing providers and iwi and Māori partners play an integral role in delivering public housing through strong community connections, knowledge and expertise in delivering public housing.

Increasing housing supply

Public housing is just one way HUD is working with our partners to increase housing supply across Aotearoa New Zealand. Other areas of work include increasing affordable rental housing supply, delivering the progressive home ownership scheme, and securing more land for housing.  

These other areas of work support people into home ownership and affordable private rentals, and fund more new homes to be built through infrastructure investment and intensification of housing.
