MSD has appointed an interim Deputy Chief Executive (DCE) for social housing
Community Housing Aotearoa are pleased to see the importance Government are giving to social and affordable housing with the appointment of Carl Crafar as interim Deputy Chief Executive (DCE) for social housing within the Ministry of Social Development (MSD).
Carl’s appointment signals an important change – namely, that MSD is now the lead agency on the Social Housing Reform Programme (SHRP). He will lead MSD’s own work on social housing, lead the cross-agency SHRP work programme, and provide a single point of accountability to Ministers.
Carl advises that his appointment does not change existing relationships community housing organisations have with any other Government agencies (MSD, Treasury, MBIE and Housing NZ). Each of the projects they are working on with the sector carry on as before.
