Marae-led initiative to provide affordable housing for whānau

Jan 1, 1970 | Uncategorised

Mr Flavell made the announcement at the Unleash The Māui Summit in Christchurch today. The land-based summit is designed to enable innovative, creative and sustainable solutions for the whenua.

The development includes six three-bedroom homes as part of a 17 home papakāinga to be built on the marae reservation. An additional two homes are expected to be built in the next five years.

“The whānau and individuals who will live in these homes, will be given the wrap around support and help they need to empower themselves to move in a more positive direction. The housing will not only complement the existing services being delivered by the marae, but will also benefit the wider community by providing much needed housing relief.”

Mr Flavell applauds the collaboration between Ngā Hau e Whā National Marae, Housing New Zealand, Rata Foundation and the Māori Housing Network led by Te Puni Kōkiri.
