You may qualify if you are a Western Australian resident.  


The Hardship Utility Grant Scheme (HUGS) is a State Government scheme which provides financial assistance to help people in financial hardship to pay their water, gas and electricity bills so their supply is not cut off.


AGL will assess whether you are eligible for a HUGS grant based on the HUGS guidelines and our Hardship Policy, and submit an application on your behalf.
