New Zealand Housing Foundation
Welcome to the New Zealand Housing Foundation


Many people can only dream of owning their own home. But The New Zealand Housing Foundation (HF) is making this dream a reality for families across the country. HF provides options for getting  New Zealanders into new homes of their own, helping them manage their finances so overtime they can afford to buy it outright.

HF is a not-for-profit, charitable trust set up to support and grow the community housing sector and provide affordable housing for low income households. The organisation is focused on developing communities and growing strong, safe neighbourhoods.

 We offer various affordable housing opportunities.  Our most popular programme is called "affordable equity" and offers shared ownership of the house, between you and HF.  Other affordable housing programmes like a no deposit "affordable rental" are available and a programme will be tailored to meet your needs and circumstances.

Current Affordable Housing Projects



West Auckland


Waimahia Inlet Affordable Housing Development

We have families for all 15 of our four bedroom houses in Sunnyvale, building is now well underway. 

If you are interested in owning a home in West Auckland, we do have some new projects coming up so please do register your interest (if you haven't already done so before) and we will keep you updated.


There will be a mixture of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes in this development, with each house architecturally designed to be warm and energy efficient.

We have 25 houses in the first stage of the development that we are looking for families for.

If you are interested in living in a beautiful coastal setting, surrounded by parks and reserves, please get in touch.


We have an exciting development happening right now in Hornby - the construction of the road is well underway and the homes will follow very soon!
