Despite the absence of a PPP legal framework Tanzania has adopted PPP in a few sectors including the housing sector. For a number of years the country has been facing a severe shortage of adequate housing. The government advised its housing agencies to adopt PPP strategies in order to deliver more adequate houses, yet the deficiency remains high and progress is slow. Therefore the objective of this paper is to identify major challenges hindering HPPP in Tanzania. A questionnaire survey and interviews were used to collect data. The sample was purposely selected whereby a total of 28 responses and 13 interviewees were obtained, which were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study discovered that the partnership opportunity in the housing sector has been unsuccessful and is being abused because of the lack of partnership skills as well as inadequate policies among other factors. Despite the failures experienced, PPP is still considered a viable arrangement if PPP principles and customized framework models are adopted. Therefore since this paper is part of the ongoing research, the next stage will use the findings obtained to develop and propose a PPP process model that will guide the projects in order to address the identified challenges.
