We co-ordinate the Warmer Healthier Homes Nelson-Marlborough insulation project, providing insulation grants to eligible people in Nelson, Tasman, and Marlborough.
Grants are available to retrofit properties where the resident (homeowner or renter) holds a valid Community Services Card.

The positive effects of improved insulation in homes are well documented:
The Warmer Healthier Homes project began in Nelson-Tasman in 2014 with the aim of supporting people most in need to improve insulation and heating efficiency in their homes. The
rationale was that by assisting people to improve their living environments, their health would also benefit and the productivity of the community would rise.
The project was extended to Marlborough in 2015, and so far around 2000 homes have been insulated in Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough.
Warmer Healthier Homes relies on the support from the following funders and partners:
