What does a grant cover?

Warmer Kiwi Homes grants are available to homeowners (not for rental properties) and cover both:

  • 90% of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation. In some areas, generous funding from community organisations means the cost to the homeowner is even lower for insulation.

  • 90% of the cost of a heat pump or efficient wood or pellet burner for the main living area. Grants for heaters are capped at $3000 (including GST). Wood and pellet burners are not available in all areas.

What is the Council offering?
The Council can provide up to $5,000 (including GST) to support the installation of a clean heat product in your home.

This money, which will incur interest is paid back (over nine years) through your property’s rates. See the table below to calculate how much you might be repaying. The extra cost will be added to your rates as a Targeted Rate and will appear on your quarterly rates invoice. The increase in your rates will begin at the start of the new rating year (from 1 July).
