Applications for rates support in Kāpiti close 30 June

Council is reminding ratepayers on low incomes, or families with high water rates and two or more dependents who receive Working for Families tax credits, that government or Council assistance may be available to help pay some of their rates. Around 2000 Kāpiti households receive this support each rating year. 

Kāpiti is one of three Districts trialling online applications for the government subsidy for the first time this year, through the Department of Internal Affairs. Applications to the Council, for people who haven’t already applied for the rating year ending 30 June, are open online or by completing a form until the end of this month. 

Information on who might qualify and how to make an application is on the Council website or the DIA site at
