This guide, published by Te Puni Kōkiri, serves as a resource for Māori seeking support in housing.

It outlines the services and support available from Te Puni Kōkiri and other New Zealand government agencies, aiming to assist whānau, hapū, and iwi Māori in achieving their housing aspirations. The guide highlights the Māori Housing Network, established in October 2015, as the primary contact point for Māori housing inquiries, offering advice, potential grants, and funding for community-coordinated housing repair programmes, building on Māori land, and developing housing proposals that align with the Network’s funding priorities. Furthermore, it includes information on emergency accommodation, rental agreement assistance, and funding opportunities for marae projects, emphasising the collaboration with the Department of Internal Affairs and the Ministry for Culture and Heritage. The guide also provides pathways towards home ownership, detailing support through Sorted, Housing New Zealand Corporation, and KiwiSaver HomeStart grants, aimed at making home ownership more accessible for Māori. For those interested in becoming community housing providers, it directs to the Ministry of Social Development and the Community Housing Regulatory Authority for guidance on registration and operation. Additionally, Te Matapihi, a national Māori housing organisation, is mentioned as a resource for developing Māori housing policy and supporting sector growth.
