ACC investment an endorsement for community housing sector – CHA

1 September 2020

Housing is about so much more than bricks and mortar. It is a human right. The Community Housing sector knows how to design, build and manage affordable housing really well. It wants and needs to do more, and that requires more investment from the public and private sector. So it’s really good news to hear ACC stepping into this space and investing in the community housing sector to build more affordable social housing. Read the full story on the Community Housing Aotearoa website.

“ACC’s investment fund is world-class,” said Community Housing Aotearoa CEO Scott Figenshow.


“Today’s announcement should send a signal to other potential funders that community housing projects provide investors the opportunity to make a significant contribution to society while also achieving relatively secure financial returns over long periods of time,” said Mr Figenshow.
