NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 22/07/2016

The latest social housing register shows an increase of 328 applications for homes.

That brought the total at the end of June to 3877.

The transfer register - people who are housed but want to move - increased by 99 to 1135.

"The register constantly fluctuates as people are housed or their eligibility changes," Social Housing Minister Paula Bennett said on Friday when she released the register.

"Our frontline teams are working incredibly hard to get people into the right housing for their circumstances, as evidenced by 645 families that were housed in June."
