What is the Energy Bills Rebate?

The main Energy Bills Rebate scheme has now closed. We have paid more than £6.5million to around 44,000 households in Dacorum under this Government scheme.

Local scheme

The Government has also provided funding of £289,500 for us to provide additional help to residents beyond that provided by the main scheme.

The local scheme we have set up will help households living in properties in bands E to H who are in receipt of a specific Council Tax reduction, exemption or discount which highlights that the household would benefit from further help towards their energy costs. The scheme also provides extra help to households in bands A to D who receive Council Tax Support.

Payment categories and amounts

Energy Bills Rebate Local Scheme categories and value of award
Household category  Value of award 
Households occupying property in Council Tax Bands E to H receiving Council Tax Support (CTS) £178
Households occupying property in Council Tax Bands F to H with disabled band reduction £150
Households occupying property in Council Tax Bands E to H, where the property is exempt from Council Tax as all residents have severe mental impairment (class U exemption)  £150

Households occupying property in Council Tax Bands A to D receiving Council Tax Support Top-up of £28 in addition to the £150 already paid

How payments will be made

You do not need to claim this payment from us. We will use the information we already hold to identify households that qualify.

Where a household in bands E to H pays Council Tax to us by Direct Debit we will make payment directly into that bank account.

Where a household in bands E to H does not pay us by Direct Debit, we will write to them asking them to give us bank account information.

Where we are making a top-up payment to a household in bands A to D we will pay this in the same way as we paid the £150 Energy Bills Rebate.

We will make these payments over the next month, and we will write to everyone who is entitled to tell them when they will get their payment. All payments will be made before 30 November 2022.
