Amidst soaring house prices, the Labour government have announced a new policy to build 18,000 state houses by 2024, with more housing policies set to follow over the year. Community groups have levied criticism that the policy doesn't go far enough, especially considering the over 20,000 strong state housing waitlist. 

Hanna reached out to Bernie Smith, CEO of the Monte Cecilia Housing Trust, for his view on the proposed public housing build and for perspective on the lived experience of Aotearoa's housing crisis.
