C11 - Community Housing Providers (CHPs)
Community Housing Providers (CHPs) include not-for-profit companies, charitable trusts, iwi and other Māori and church organisations.
These providers offer housing options for low-to-moderate-income groups. CHPs operate throughout the country, but almost half of their stock is located in Auckland and Wellington
Within the CHPs sector, different organisations provide different housing services, including: emergency housing, subsidised rental housing, market rentals and affordable
- CHPs are usually not-for-profit organisations that have a strong commitment to providing quality, affordable housing for the community.
- Registered CHPs can participate in the government income-related rents system, which means that their rental properties can be more affordable than market rentals.
- The CHP stock is currently small, and its availability is limited in many areas of the country.
- Most CHPs do not provide housing specifically for older people, so it may not be modified for an older person's needs and may not be located conveniently.
What do I need in order to take this option?
- You need to meet the eligibility criteria of the CHP for your area.
- CHP properties need to be available in your area.
Could this option limit my future choices?
