This report provides a critical review of housing policy as it pertains to rangatahi Māori in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand.

It aims to identify gaps in the current housing system, offer insights into the necessity of considering rangatahi Māori in housing policy, and suggest areas for further research. With a focus on improving policy outcomes for Māori by utilising Kaupapa Māori methodologies, this review emphasises the urgent need for innovative solutions to meet the housing aspirations of whānau, hapū, iwi, and marae. Highlighting the dire state of housing, poverty, and inequality in Aotearoa, where a significant portion of children live in poverty and severe housing deprivation is on the rise, this paper examines the demographic challenges and the disproportionate impact on Pacific and Māori youth. It delves into policy frameworks, reviews significant housing policies from 2009 to 2020, and assesses their implications for Māori and youth housing. Concluding with recommendations for investing in rangatahi Māori housing research and improving housing policy for rangatahi Māori, the paper calls for an equity-based approach to address the distinct needs, issues, and challenges faced by rangatahi Māori, advocating for targeted, Māori-led solutions to housing issues. In particular, it two key recommendations to address the gaps identified in the report, invest in rangatahi Māori housing research and improve housing policy for rangatahi Māori.
