The Government has three over-arching priorities:
- Keeping New Zealanders safe from COVID-19.
- Accelerating the recovery and rebuild from COVID-19.
- Laying the foundations for the future, including addressing key issues such as climate change, housing affordability, and child poverty.
We contribute to achieving these priorities by collecting and distributing money, making our services accessible and easy to use, and working with other agencies, including sharing information with them, to deliver better services and outcomes for New Zealanders.
