Requests for proposals for social housing outside Auckland

Dec 12, 2016 | News

CHA understands this is a trial open only through to 31 March 2017, with a cap of $6.6M in funding. Please see the full notice here.

CHA have commented to MSD that it should have confidence in the combination of rent subsidy, upfront funding and services funding; and to make these settings available across New Zealand on a permanent basis. We’ve also stated these should be based on local need and without any specific deadline. We have heard loud and clear, that in order to give community housing providers confidence, you need to know that the funding door is open – next year, the year after that and well into the future. So this recent announcement doesn’t go far enough to build that confidence – however, it could help to build MSD’s capacity if we show there is a strong demand going forward.

Please look seriously at taking up this offer and let CHA know what works or what doesn’t’ work in this scheme.

More detail:

  • responses are due by 31 March, 2017 and all homes are expected to be delivered by December 2019.
  • Proposals can be from multiple parties and can be both a mix of short term availability (become available within 3-12 months) and longer term options with all properties to be available by December 2019.
  • MSD is prepared to consider contract terms with successful respondents up to a maximum duration of 10 years for lease arrangements and 10 to 25 years for relocated properties and new builds.
  • They are able to offer an operating supplement of up to 35% of market rent during the contract term or upfront development funding of up to 35% of a property’s value to support the purchase of these additional properties.
