Anyone can apply for a Te Kāinga apartment but applications are prioritised based on the following criteria:
- People on incomes under $95,000 for an individual and $150,000 for a couple or family who are not eligible for income related rent.
- People who do not own their own home.
- People who work in or intend to work in:
- Public sector
- Public transport
- Education and training
- Māori organisations
- The arts
Where there is more demand than we have available units, applicants will be selected by ballot.
We will review the criteria over time to ensure the programme continues to meet the needs of the city.
