COVID-19: Information for Community Housing Providers

Essential Health Advice and Information about Covid-19.

Always check the Ministry of Health website for the lastest official information relating to COVID-19.

Further information and resources about Covid-19 relevant to your work as a Community Housing Provider are available under the ‘Best Practice’ tab of our website here:

The Government has announced more details of the rent freeze and protections for tenants during the lock-down period. These were posted to on 25 March and are available on the HUD website.

The Ministry of Social Development and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development have emailed a “Letter of Proof” directly to their contracted housing and related services providers on the afternoon of 26 March. If you have not received one, please let us know and contact your contract manager at the appropriate Ministry. These can be used to ensure that you are able to continue to provide services and also to be able to receive essential services from suppliers or contractors.

We have requested housing-specific advice from the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and will pass that on when it arrives.

The work you do makes a difference in so many lives: please take care of yourselves during this rapidly evolving situation.
