Changes made to Household Fuel and Power Allowance Scheme

Changes have been made to the Household Fuel and Power Allowance scheme to make it a non-taxable benefit. At a special meeting of Executive Council on the 1st December the change was made meaning that eligible households will receive the full £140 allowance tax free. The deadline for applications to receive the full six months of support has also been extended until the 31st December with payments to be backdated for the first month.
