The Government has earmarked $2.7 million towards the infrastructure for a Tauranga papakainga.

Ranginui 12 Trust is putting more than $2 million towards the nine-home development.

Maori Development and Associate Housing Minister Nanaia Mahuta says Tauranga is one of the most expensive places in the world to buy or rent housing, and the trust is taking steps to ensure their whānau have access to safe and secure housing.

The papakainga will provide added support to two local Marae; Ngā pae tapu o Hairini and Maungatapu.

Ms Mahuta says as kaupapa Māori communities, papakainga can not only reconnect Māori with their ancestral whenua but can provide a strong sense of ownership and self-determination.
