EECA Warmer Kiwi Homes Subsidy
What is the Warmer Kiwi Homes Subsidy?
As a homeowner, you may be eligible for the EECA Warmer Kiwi Homes Subsidy, a government initiative that provides grants covering between 80% and 90% of the cost of home insulation and installing it. This program is available for low-income homeowners living in “deprivation areas” identified as for the program, homeowners with a Community Services Card, and homeowners with a SuperGold Combo card.
If your home qualifies for the grant, EECA covers between 80% & 90% of the cost of insulation and WISE through our funders, will cover the rest of the insulation cost making it 100% FREE for you!
* Please note this is limited to the Taranaki Region and is ONLY available for ceiling and underfloor insulation.
To be eligible for the grant:
If you had an insulation grant for a previous house, no worries, you can apply for a grant at your current home.
100% FREE home insulation
Even if you have insulation, it might not meet the current standard. Warmer Kiwi Homes subsidies can cover additional insulation for your home.
Without insulation your home will lose heat through the roof, the walls and the floor which will in turn make your home cold, damp and ultimately impact your family’s health.
For houses built before 2000, insulation may be inadequate, is no longer in good condition or in the case of many older houses, never installed at all. In these cases, insulation can be easily retrofitted into the ceiling and underfloor cavities (if accessible).
