How NHFIC helps

NHFIC offers loans, investments and grants to encourage investment in housing, with a particular focus on affordable housing. This includes providing finance to eligible housing-enabling projects. We can help important housing projects go ahead—strengthening housing supply, improving access to cheaper and longer-term loans for CHPs and supporting affordable housing.

NHFIC operates the Affordable Housing Bond Aggregator (AHBA) to provide loans to registered CHPs financed by the issue of bonds on the commercial market; and the National Housing Infrastructure Facility (NHIF) to provide loans, grants and equity finance to overcome impediments to the provision of housing that is due to a lack of necessary infrastructure. NHFIC also provides grants for capacity building services to assist tier 2 and 3 CHPs with applications for NHFIC finance.

In everything we do, we are guided by our core values which underpin our organisation’s culture, the way we go about our work, how we interact with our stakeholders and how we deliver on our purpose.
