£150 Council Tax Rebate

Households in Council Tax bands A-D are eligible to receive a non-repayable £150 Council Tax Rebate from the government to help with rising energy bills. Forest of Dean District Council will be distributing the payments to everyone eligible within the district.

Update 2 October 2022 - Applications for the discretionary scheme are now closed.

Update 5 September 2022 - We are no longer accepting applications for the Energy Rebate Scheme for properties in bands A-D.

Update 15 August 2022 - We still have some funding available, so have put together a second discretionary scheme for those who are not eligible for the government’s £150 Council Tax Rebate. The criteria is aimed at those who we think will need it most.

Update 17 May 2022 - We have made payments to the majority of people paying by Direct Debit and are now inviting eligible households who do not pay by Direct Debit to apply for the payment.
