Prolonged Power Outage Payments

20 February, 2024

The Victorian and Australian Governments will make available a Prolonged Power Outage Payment to households and small businesses without power for 7 days as a result of last Tuesday’s storms.

A payment of $1,920 per week will be extended to all eligible households (residential customers) that remain without power as of 12:01am Tuesday 20 February 2024. Households who may be eligible will be proactively notified by their distribution business.

Funding will be allocated through a payment application process, by which residential customers will be invited to apply for the payment. The payment will be administered by distribution businesses.

For small businesses (those with a Victorian payroll less than $10 million a year) who are affected, payments of $2,927 per week will be made.
