Kāinga Whenua Loan Scheme
The Kāinga Whenua Loan Scheme is an initiative between Housing New Zealand and Kiwibank to help Māori achieve home ownership on their multiple-owned land.*
Loans are available for individuals and from this year have been extended to Māori land trusts and other collectives (see announcement by the Associate Minister of Housing).
Housing New Zealand and Kiwibank together assess and administer the Kāinga Whenua Loan Scheme for Māori land trusts and other collectives.
* Note: The Government announced changes to the Kāinga Whenua Loan Scheme on 7 November that extended the definition of Māori land to include land received by iwi and hapu as part of Treaty settlements.
