MSD purchases tenancies from Housing New Zealand and registered community housing providers for people on the social housing register.
Deputy CE Social Policy Nic Blakeley says the information is intended for providers of social housing, including those looking at coming into the market.
“The information released today gives a picture of current demand for social housing. It provides an indication of where extra places are likely to be needed over the next two to three years, the number of tenancies MSD expects to fund by location and how MSD will contract with social housing providers for tenancies,” says Mr Blakeley.
