The NSW 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 buy/refill LPG bottled gas, or you're an on supply customer, you can apply for the rebate online.
Note: 'On supply' means you receive a gas (LPG or natural gas) bill or invoice issued by, or on behalf of, the owners or management of your residential community, retirement village, or strata scheme.

- you're a NSW resident
