Accessible Properties is encouraged by the government’s commitment to provide an additional $2.5 million investment for emergency housing in Tauranga.
The investment is part of an emergency housing package of $20.5 million to provide an additional 1500 houses nationwide through the Housing First programme.
“We are encouraged by the government’s commitment to work long-term and in partnership with community housing providers to tackle New Zealand’s housing crisis,” says Accessible Properties chief executive Greg Orchard.
Accessible Properties is one of New Zealand’s largest community housing providers with more than 2500 homes, including more than a thousand in Tauranga.
“Accessible Properties is already working hard in partnership with Tauranga’s emergency housing providers and government agencies to ensure people within the region have the best chance to move from homelessness to stable housing,” says Accessible Properties general manager Tauranga Vicki McLaren.
“We speak to people all over the country who are in need for good, warm, dry homes, and we welcome any moves to make a difference in people’s lives,” says Greg.
