The funding criteria for the goverment's Warm up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme has recently got much wider, which means more people can get funding to help pay for insulation.
Community Services Card holders are still eligible, so if you own your own home or rent one, get in touch for help to apply.
The new criteria opens up the funding to people that do not have a Community Services Card, but are still classed as low-income because their income level is up to $20,000 above the most relevant Community Services Card threshold.
