    Sefton Council have been awarded a government grant to help residents who may be struggling to pay their Council Tax during the COVID-19 outbreak.

    Sefton will receive a grant of £3.037m as part of £500m available nationally from the government’s emergency Council Tax Hardship Fund.

    Any residents who are of working age, and have had their bill reduced by an award of Council Tax Reduction, will be eligible for relief of at least £150 from the fund.

    The local authority will make a decision on a case by case basis for any relief above £150, taking into account the funding available.

    A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “This relief will reduce Council Tax bills for eligible claimants for the financial year of 2020/2021.

    “Any eligible council tax bills will be re-issued once the relief has been applied.

    “Any balance remaining from the £3m will be added to the Council’s Council Tax Exceptional Hardship Payment Fund.

    “This fund can be applied for by anyone who is responsible for Council Tax who is suffering financial hardship.”

    could someone from sefton council clarify that someone who is getting an award of Council Tax Reduction has to then re apply for this fund??????



    There should be no need for any recipient of LCTS to make a separate claim for a reduction under this scheme. The billing authority should assess who is eligible for support from the hardship fund and automatically rebill those council taxpayers
