Service helps organisations address housing concerns

  • 19 Jul 2021

The Pacific Community Housing Provider (CHP) Registration Support Service offers a unique opportunity for Pacific organisations who want to help address the growing housing concerns for Pacific Aotearoa.  

This service is part of the Ministry for Pacific Peoples’ (MPP) Pacific Housing Initiative, and the Ministry is currently seeking registrations of interest (RoI) from organisations who have the aim of becoming a Social Housing Landlord and providing community housing services to their community.

The CHP) Registration Support Service will support approximately six organisations through the RoI process, and they will receive support to achieve these aims.

The Ministry has engaged the services of a specialist housing consultancy to assist Pacific organisations to develop, document and achieve their housing aspirations and achieve successful registration as Community Housing Providers. 

Consultants will work with selected Pacific organisations to develop skills and knowledge, and to help them understand organisational policies, procedures, documentation and legal requirements to achieve and maintain registration as providers.

To be eligible for selection, organisations need:

- To be an established legal entity with governance in place;

- Provide evidence your organisation has committed to the decision to work towards achieving CHP registration; and

- Commit organisational resources and personnel to a programme of training to build the organisation’s capability towards achieving CHP registration and providing community housing.

Preference will be given to organisations currently involved in the provision of housing services or assessed as potentially having the ability to achieve CHP registration within 12 months.
