Council Tax Hardship Grant

Find out about our hardship grant introduced in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

About the grant

In response to the coronavirus outbreak, the government announced a Hardship Grant for working age Council Tax Support customers to help with their Council Tax bill.

The grant is £150, or your qualifying outstanding Council Tax liability, whichever is lower.

There is no need to apply for the grant as it's awarded automatically. The grant shows on your Council Tax bill as Council Tax Discretionary Relief, and your instalments (if you have any) will be recalculated to include the reduction.
