The Trust was established as a community response to declining housing affordability in Nelson and Tasman. We work in partnership with the New Zealand Government, local councils, Housing New Zealand, Social Housing Unit and other agencies to improve access to good quality, affordable housing to those on low to mid incomes and people with special needs. We also see a need to address emergency accommodation and energy conservation. The NTHT also coordinates emergency housing and a bond bank on behalf of 10 agencies in the Nelson region.
