Nelson Tasman Housing Trust

NTHT provides quality, affordable, healthy homes and services for people on low-to-modest incomes. The Trust was established in 2004 as a community response to declining housing affordability in Nelson and Tasman. NTHT has built and operates 54 rental homes and leases one other. As of early 2024 we have another 24 homes in development on three sites. We offer a mix of affordable rentals and public housing. NTHT also manages a 20-home papakāinga for Te Awhina Marae in Motueka, and administers the Warmer Healthier Homes project, providing insulation for low-income homeowners. WHH has insulated over 3000 older homes across Te Tauihu/the Top of the South Island in the past ten years.

NTHT collaborates with many other community agencies to address housing need: we provide Housing Advice to people seeking in housing in Nelson, do action research to Monitor Local Housing Need every 6-months, and help to lead the Housing Vulnerability Network, which provides up-to-date housing information and resources for local community workers.
