Aanvragen eenmalige energietoeslag (Engels) - Applications for the one-off energy assistance payment

Energietoeslag

From 19 April 2022, the inhabitants of the Drechtsteden region can apply for a one-off energy assistance payment. You can apply for this up to and including 31 October 2022.


For whom?

The one-off energy assistance payment is paid to inhabitants of the Drechtsteden region, whose income is less than 130% of the legal minimum subsistence level (Wettelijk sociaal minimum, WSM).


Automatic payment

Some inhabitants of the Drechtsteden region automatically receive/have automatically received this one-off energy assistance payment (official benefit). These inhabitants have received/receive general assistance or income support relating to this in the period from 1 July 2021 until 1 April 2022. See the list of frequently asked questions below for more information.  Did you receive this benefit? In that case you cannot apply for the one-off energy assistance payment.


Problems with automatic payment to inhabitants who are exempt from paying municipal taxes. 

We indicated in previous communications which inhabitants in the Drechtsteden region will automatically receive this energy assistance payment. Due to circumstances we have not (yet) been able to pay the energy assistance payment to inhabitants who are exempt from paying municipal taxes.


Unfortunately, we realised that automatic payment cannot be made to this group. We sincerely apologise for this.  Were you exempt from municipal taxes in 2022 but has the one-off energy assistance payment not been paid into your account yet? Please submit a application in that case.
