Community Housing Regulatory Authority
The Community Housing Regulatory Authority (CHRA), based in the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE), registers and regulates Community Housing Providers (CHPs) to ensure they are well-governed, remain viable, and deliver appropriate housing services to tenants.
The Authority also works to support the growth of a fair, efficient and transparent community housing sector. Once registered, your organisation may be eligible to enter into a contract with the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) in order to receive the Income-Related Rent Subsidy (IRRS), but this is at MSDs discretion. Registration with the Authority does not automatically guarantee IRRS.
