Utility Relief Grant application
What is a Utility Relief Grant?
This State Government grant may assist households who are unable to pay their mains electricity, gas or water bill due to a temporary financial crisis.
If you are eligible, the Utility Relief Grant may assist you by removing up to $650 from your Yarra Valley Water debt. If needed, you can apply multiple times in a two-year period, up to the maximum of $650.
You can start the application process by completing the details below. One of our WaterCare Support consultants will then contact you to complete the rest of your application. It will then be passed onto the Department of Health and Human Services for assessment. This can take up to 10 weeks. We will let you know the outcome of your application and if approved, that amount will be paid directly to your Yarra Valley Water account.
Please note that submitting this form does not mean that your application has been approved. Your application will need to be assessed by the Department of Health and Human Services.
