There have been some changes to the Federal insulation rebate programs. The Low Emission Assistance Plan for Renters (LEAPR), which provided $1000 rebate to landlords for rental accommodation, is now discontinued. Instead renters are now eligible for Home Insulation Program (HIP) which provides assistance of up to $1,600 to install ceiling insulation. The assistance is now available to eligible owner-occupiers, landlords and tenants. While the rebate has been increased per household there has been a dramatic reduction on the overall amount of money available to this part of the program.
