The Government has announced a £500 million hardship fund to help working age people, who get Council Tax Reduction (CTR), pay their council tax bill.
A discount of up to £150 will be awarded to those working age customers who receive CTR and bills showing this will be issued as soon as possible from mid June onwards. Teignbridge already provides 100% support to its most vulnerable residents but this fund will help those who are not in receipt of full support and will reduce the amount they have to pay during this difficult time. There’s no need to contact us about this as we have identified the customers who will be entitled to this support and will award it automatically.
We are working with our software supplier and will look to apply these discounts and any further support available as soon as we are able.
