Help for low-income households

Warmer Kiwi Homes

The government's Warmer Kiwi Homes programme provides funding to pay for two thirds of insulation and heating in the homes of eligible people. Through Sustainability Trust, this funding is available for homeowner-occupiers in Wellington City, Porirua, Kapiti Coast and Upper and Lower Hutt.

The grant covers ceiling insulation, underfloor insulation and ground vapour barrier supply and install. As of July 2019, low income homeowners can also be eligible for a grant covering two thirds of the cost of a heat pump, up to $2500.

Eligibility criteria summary

Still unsure? Here is a useful tool that will help you understand if you're eligible. Please note that if you're interested in funding for a heat pump, you must apply via the tool.

There is some paperwork to complete to get funding, which our team of Home Energy Assessors and Customer Services staff can help with. Get in touch today for help to apply.

There are a range of options to help cover the remaining costs. There may be additional subsidies available, or you could consider a safe low-cost loan and repayment plan - GWRC's voluntary rates loan scheme, our in-house 0% interest, or ANZ's 0% interest home insulation loan.
