Funding for insulation

Intro Image.

EECA is offering Warmer Kiwi Homes grants for ceiling and underfloor insulation to make homes warmer, drier and healthier.

Warmer Kiwi Homes

Warmer Kiwi Homes is a new four-year Government programme offering grants covering two-thirds of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation. Additional contributions from community organisations will make the cost to homeowners as low as possible in many areas.

Grants covering two thirds of the cost of heating appliances will be available from July 2019 (these grants will be capped). Please note, Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes grants for landlords came to their scheduled end on 30 June 2018.

Am I eligible for a Warmer Kiwi Homes grant?

To be eligible for a grant you will need to:
  • be the homeowner (owner-occupier) of a home built before 2008 AND
  • have a Community Services Card or SuperGold combo card, OR
  • own and be living in a home in an area identified as lower-income OR
  • be referred by the Healthy Homes Initiative.
