Because the Wellington Region deals with varying weather conditions, the Greater Wellington Region is offering assistance for home heating and insulation. Through our schemes, we offer region wide financial assistance to insulate rate payers homes. Also we provide assitance for people in the Masterton and Wainuiomata districts to replace old wood burners with cleaner heating options. 

Wellington Region Scheme

Greater Wellington provides each ratepayer 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.
