Greater Wellington's work is funded by a mix of rates, levies, grants, subsidies, investments and other revenue. In 2015, regional rates - comprising general rates and targeted rates - made up 45 percent of our total revenue. Government grants and subsidies (primarily for funding public transport) made up 31 percent, and the water supply levy (charged to Wellington, Porirua, Hutt and Upper Hutt city councils) made up a further 12 percent. The remaining 8 percent of revenue is from other external sources.
