Karen Welcomes £350 Government Support For Households In Staffs Moorlands To Help With Energy costs


Moorlands MP, Karen Bradley has welcomed the plans from the Government which will mean 37,202 households across the Moorlands are set to be supported with a £150 non-repayable cash rebate.


This is just part of the support put in place, with plans worth up to £350 per household across Staffordshire Moorlands in total, as part of the £9.1 billion package of government support to help with rising energy bills.


Following Ofgem’s confirmation that the energy price cap will rise by £700 from April, the Government has announced this three-part plan to help with household fuel bills immediately and protect people against half of this increase.


Support includes:


· A £200 ‘smoothing’ rebate on energy bills for all households, to be paid back over the next five years at £40 per year – starting from April 2023


· A non-repayable £150 cash rebate for homes in Council Tax bands A-D – equivalent to 80 per cent of all households, helping both lower and middle-income families


· £144 million of discretionary funding for local authorities to support households not eligible for the council tax rebate


Measures also include continuing with plans to increase the Warm Homes Discount and extend eligibility by one-third to 3 million vulnerable households, worth £150.


Commenting, Karen said:


“I welcome the announcement of measures that will help 37,202 households across the Moorlands with council tax bills, as well as a £200 rebate on energy bills for all households, on top of pre-existing measures to support families, such as the Warm Home Discount scheme.”
