You may qualify if you are a New South Wales resident.


The EAPA scheme helps financially disadvantaged people who are having difficulty paying their electricity or gas bill because of a crisis or emergency situation. The scheme ensures people stay connected to essential services during a financial crisis, and is not available on an ongoing basis.
