The plan was launched at the Habitat for Humanity conference in Rotorua, and builds on the Green Party’s Home for Life policy, which was first launched before the last election.
“Our Home for Life plan is about giving more New Zealanders a fair shot at owning their own home – even when the market’s stacked against them,” said Mrs Turei.
“Building more houses that people can actually afford to buy is a critical part of solving the housing crisis.
“Our progressive ownership model will help to make the home ownership dream a reality for people who are locked out of the market right now because they can’t afford a deposit or a normal commercial mortgage.
“We’re also going to make sure the community housing sector has the finance and political support they need to drive their important work.
“Up to 5,000 new, energy efficient homes will also be available for the community housing sector to purchase using progressive ownership.
