Introducing KiwiSaver HomeStart Grant

The KiwiSaver HomeStart grant will be introduced on 1 April 2015, to replace the KiwiSaver First Home deposit subsidy.

Like the KiwiSaver first home deposit subsidy, the KiwiSaver HomeStart grant provides eligible first home buyers with a grant of up to $5,000 for individuals and up to $10,000 for couples to put towards a deposit for an existing home.

In addition, the new KiwiSaver HomeStart grant will also provide eligible first home buyers with a grant of up to $10,000 for individuals and up to $20,000 for couples to help with the costs of building or purchasing a brand new home.
