The Gas Rebate helps eligible NSW households cover the costs of their natural gas or LPG (bottled gas) if it is used for basic household needs such as cooking, heating or hot water.

If you receive your bill directly from your natural gas retailer and you meet the eligibility requirements, call the company and ask them to apply the NSW Gas Rebate to your account. You'll need to supply your concession card or healthcare card details when you call.

If you buy/refill LPG bottled gas, or are billed for your gas (LPG or natural gas) by the strata manager or community/village operator, you can apply for the rebate online.

Note: 'On-supplied' means that you receive a bill or invoice issued by, or on behalf of, the owners or management of your residential community, retirement village, or strata scheme, rather than a bill issued by the natural gas retailer.
