CORT – another example of community housing in your community

Jul 9, 2020 | Case Studies

CORT CEO Peter Jeffries and tenant Carla Vauvale

Forty-three families, who had been on the housing emergency waiting list, are moving into new rental properties this December. These homes were built by non-profit group CORT Community Housing in Papakura, Auckland.

CORT chief executive Peter Jeffries said his team looked after tenants living in about 300 public houses – 200 of which CORT itself owned.

That number is set to grow with the group building a further 120 public houses as part of existing funding agreements it has with the Government.

Having operated for more than 30 years, Jeffries said the group gives state housing tenants security because it holds onto its properties for decades. It also helps connect tenants with a range of support services.

And like all public housing tenants, those living in CORT houses get access to cheaper Government subsidised rents.
