Māori Housing Act 1935


The Māori Housing Act 1935 is our current legislation and is defined as ‘an act to make better provision for the housing of the Māori people’. The act has 15 sections that pertain to who the act is for, what the scope of the act enables and prohibits, and how the act is governed within New Zealand. The Māori Housing act speaks to the capacity for Te Puni Kōkiri (Ministry of Māori Development) to provide opportunities for new Māori housing projects as well as enabling repairs towards existing Māori housing.
