Home heating and insulation assistance

Home heating and insulation assistance

Updated 17 March 2021 2:39pm

We are currently reviewing the scheme’s structure and are not taking any new applications at this time.

We will update this page when we have more details.

Home insulation keeps our homes warm and dry and replacing old wood-burners reduces air pollution and keeps us safe.

We offer region-wide financial assistance (interest bearing) for insulation for those houses built prior to the year 2005. In the Wainuiomata / Masterton districts only where air pollution is a problem, we also offer financial assistance (interest bearing) for clean heating.

Wellington Region Scheme

For properties built before the year 2005 we offer ratepayers in the region a maximum of $3,900 in financial assistance for home insulation. It can be repaid through a targeted rate on your regular rates bill over nine years.
