€1.4m still available through Electric Ireland COVID-19 hardship fund

A €2 million COVID hardship fund is available to help people pay energy bills through a partnership between St Vincent de Paul and MABS - The Money Advice and Budgeting Service.

The fund was set up by Electric Ireland earlier this year to help their customers who were struggling to meet payments for their energy bills. 

Since the launch of the fund in March 2021, more than one-quarter of the €2 million funding has already been allocated by Electric Ireland to SVP and MABS clients requiring financial support with their Electric Ireland energy bills, and a further €1.4 million is still available to those in need of assistance.

Each applicant is assessed on an individual basis by SVP and MABS and credits to offset energy bills are provided upon application approval.
