Where can I find affordable housing?

Main providers

Kainga Ora
If you would like to apply for public housing, including a Kainga Ora home (formerly Housing New Zealand), your first step is to talk to Work and Income about your housing needs. They'll discuss your situation with you and look at the best way to help. Then, if you are eligible to be considered for the public housing register, they'll arrange an assessment interview for you. To get started, call Work and Income on 0800 559 009 or Senior Services on 0800 552 002 if you're over 65.
