appears to be on track
So far, 206 houses have been built, more than half of those are papakāinga homes, and 257 houses have been repaired.
Māori Development Minister Willie Jackson said the Government has a clear strategy.
"Māori housing ownership has dropped back over the last few years and its a long road but we'll get there," he said.
"There wasn't a lot of money available for papakāinga but we've upped that pūtea, and its hugely significant because people want to bring their whānau back, and papakāinga is about that, bringing whānau back who will commit in terms of the whānau, the land and the tribe."
As an incentive for Māori to build on unutilised land, the Government will front all infrastructure costs for papakāinga homes and up to 75% of construction costs.
