Funding for insulation

EECA offers grants for ceiling and underfloor insulation to make homes warmer, drier and healthier.

New grants available 1 July 2018

Warmer Kiwi Homes is a new four-year Government programme offering grants covering two thirds of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation, as well as ground vapour barriers. Additional contributions from community organisations will be sought to make the retrofits as low cost as possible. This offer is available from 1 July 2018.

Grants covering two thirds of the cost of heating appliances will be available from July 2019 (will be a capped grant).

Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes ends 30 June 2018

Grants of 50% of the cost of insulation are currently available for low-income owner-occupiers and landlords with low-income tenants.

These Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes grants are limited and will finish by the end of June 2018. If you want insulation installed under this programme, you must sign a contract with a Warm Up New Zealand provider before 30 June 2018 and have the install completed by 31 July 2018.

Some service providers are experiencing high demand and may not be able to accept any further work under this programme.

Eligible homeowners (owner-occupiers) who hold off having their homes insulated until 1 July 2018, will receive a higher level of subsidy under Warmer Kiwi Homes.

Are you eligible for a Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes grant?

You may qualify for a grant if:
  • the house was built before the year 2000, and
  • you own and occupy the home and have a Community Services Card, or
  • you are a landlord and your named tenant has a Community Services Card.
Grants are also available for low-income households and tenants with high health needs if:
  • your income is just above Community Services Card level and you have high health needs related to cold, damp housing, or
  • you are referred by the Ministry of Health's Healthy Homes programme.

Properties owned by a Government agency do not qualify for the programme.

How to apply for Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes

Contact a service provider to confirm if you are eligible.

Be aware that funding is limited, and projects may not cover all regions or all areas within a region. Please check with the listed service providers to find out if they are operating in your area.

There may be other payment options to help you pay off the rest of the cost - talk to a service provider to find out more.
