COVID-19 Hardship Fund Allocation
Government has provided Barnet with funding of £4,132,829 to support Council Tax payers. In line with government guidance, if you are a working age Barnet resident currently in receipt of Council Tax Support then you will be automatically awarded £150 towards your 2020/21 Council Tax account.
Please note: if your total balance for the year is less than £150 you will receive the value of your outstanding balance after any discounts, exemptions and Council Tax Support have been awarded.
The £150 grant will also be awarded on any successful new Council Tax Support claims made on or before 30 May 2020.
The remaining amount from the government funding will be used to support those affected by COVID-19 via Barnet’s Discretionary Council Tax Hardship Scheme and Crisis Fund.
