The Labour Party says, if elected, it will get more than 20,000 Māori into home ownership with a $20 million boost for support services.
The party's Māori development spokesperson, Kelvin Davis, made the announcement at its Māori campaign launch in Auckland today.
He said Māori home ownership rates had fallen from half to a quarter in the last 30 years, and his party would invest $20m in community groups and services such as budgeting advisers.
The party also announced other measures, including letting iwi access collective mortgages to build on iwi land.
A special Māori Housing Unit would also be created within the party's proposed Affordable Housing Authority.
