The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) seeks to engage providers to deliver temporary Emergency Housing Services in Canterbury from 1 September 2014.
The aim of the Emergency Housing Service is to provide short-term accommodation and individualised support services for households that have an emergency housing need. The accommodation for this Service may either be sourced by providers directly or sourced by Government with the provider becoming the leaseholder. The support services should assist households to transition to a stable personal and financial position and achieve a more sustainable housing solution within an average of eight weeks.
The Service will be delivered over a 24 month period to provide additional emergency housing services while Housing New Zealand, the Christchurch City Council and Community Housing Providers progress their rebuild and repair of social housing stock, and the supply of affordable rental market properties increases.
MSD is seeking proposals to provide services for two groups of approximately twenty households.
 The first group comprises single persons who have a range of needs that make it difficult for them to access private rental housing. These needs might include mental health needs or disability.
 The second group are family groups who require urgent housing support.
MSD is seeking proposals to provide services to either or both of these two groups.
