Just announced today. Every little bit helps.
If you're having difficulty paying your household energy bill because of a short-term financial crisis or emergency, such as unexpected medical bills, or reduced income due to COVID-19, you could be eligible for Energy Accounts Payment Assistance (EAPA) $50 vouchers.
EAPA vouchers are sent electronically to your energy retailer and used to credit your home electricity or gas account. EAPA vouchers can't be used to put your energy account into credit.
- have an electricity or natural gas account for a NSW residential supply address, which is your primary place of residence
be the electricity or natural gas account holder (your account and bill must be in your name)
- be experiencing a short-term financial crisis or emergency that has impacted your ability to pay your residential energy bill(s).
