Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust
The Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust (QLCHT) has a range of housing programmes, each designed to assist low to moderate income households, who contribute to the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of this District and are genuinely struggling to commit to the area because of the housing affordability issue.
The Trust’s mission is to help committed residents of the Queenstown Lakes District into decent affordable housing with secure tenure.
There is a basic set of criteria which needs to be met in order to be eligible for assistance through QLCHT, such as:
- You must have lived in the Queenstown Lakes District for a minimum of six months and have made this your permanent home.
- At least one adult member of your household must have Permanent New Zealand Residency or New Zealand Citizenship.
- At least one member of your household must be in fulltime employment.
- Your financial position (income and assets) is assessed against a set of criteria.
For more information, and to register your interest please go to the Housing Trust website www.qlcht.org.nz
