The Family Energy Rebate helps NSW family households with dependent children cover the costs of their energy bills.
The rebate gives eligible energy account holders a credit on an energy bill of up to $180. It is available for both retail and on supply customers.
Applications for 2023-24 are now open.

To be eligible for the rebate in a given financial year, you must:
- be a NSW resident
- be the account holder of an energy retailer
- have been the recipient of the Family Tax Benefit (FTB) for the previous financial year and have had your entitlement to the FTB payments finalised by Centrelink
- ensure the person in your household who's registered as the FTB recipient, lodges the application (the recipient is the person who receives correspondence on FTB from Services Australia).
