How EAPA can help you.

EAPA is a NSW Government scheme designed to: 

  • Assist customers who are experiencing a financial crisis or emergency and need help to pay their home electricity and/or natural gas (energy) bills.

  • Assist customers stay connected to essential energy services, EAPA can help customers reconnect their electricity and/or natural gas utilities.

How Does The EAPA Scheme Work? 

  • EAPA vouchers are issued by participating EAPA providers such as Narara Community Centre and many others. The EAPA Scheme operates through a voucher system and each voucher is worth $50.

  • The EAPA provider assesses the customer's situation and determines each case based on individual circumstances. The vouchers issued to the customer will be sent to the retailer electronically by the EAPA provider and the vouchers will be paid to the customer's account.

  • Note: Before contacting an EAPA Provider to make an appointment for an EAPA assessment, please contact your electricity or gas supplier to find out what payment plans and other assistance might be available. You may be able to agree on a payment plan with your supplier to suit your financial situation.
