What is the Household Utility Assistance Package?
The Queensland Government have announced that they are providing a $300 Million Household Utility Assistance Package to all Queenslanders to assist households during the COVID-19 crisis.
This package is in addition to the Government’s Asset Ownership Dividend package. It will see households receive a $200 utility payment for assistance with electricity and water bills.
What Makes up the Household Utility Payment?
The $200 utility payment builds on the previous announcement of the $50 Asset Ownership Dividend. It will see households receive another $50 in electricity bill relief (bringing it to a total of $100 in electricity bill relief) and a further $100 towards water bills this year.
How Will People Receive the Payment?
The $200 utility bill assistance package will automatically be applied to your household electricity bill; SAS will apply on behalf of our customers.
How Many Households Will Receive the Household Utility Package?
Around 2 million households across the state will receive the utility package.
All households will receive the package including homeowners, tenants, customers who receive their electricity bill from their landlord or Body Corporate and customers in communities with card-operated meters.
When Will Queenslanders Start to Receive the Utility Payment?
SAS will apply on behalf of our customers and issue in their 30th April billing cycle.
