The New Zealand Government is offering $5000 cash to people in Auckland to move to another part of the country.
The scheme launches in Auckland today, and is part of efforts to tackle the city’s housing crisis.
Anyone willing to move will get a grant of up to NZ$5,000, as long as they’re currently eligible for social housing.
Social Housing Minister Paula Bennett says 130 have voiced an interest in the scheme so far, and stressed that the scheme is voluntary.
Auckland has seen house prices boom in recent years, and a shortage of affordable housing has left some families living in dire conditions.
