Did you know that all beneficiaries receiving an indigent grant must re-apply for the subsidy every year as stated in the Overstrand Municipality Indigent Policy, clause 13(b).
Households in need of financial support will automatically forfeit their indigent subsidies and free basic services (such as the electricity units) if their indigent subsidy has expired and they have not re-applied for the grant.
So, this is an urgent reminder to those indigent consumers whose grants for free basic services expired on 31 August 2023 to re-apply and submit applications as soon as possible.
New applications will be implemented from the date of application.
Affected indigent consumers can visit any of the municipal offices in Gansbaai, Stanford, Hermanus or Kleinmond during the week.
Support will also be available on Saturday mornings from 09:00 – 12:00 on a rotation basis. Ask your ward councillor for more info.
For more information contact the Finance Department at your nearest municipal rates hall for assistance during the week or phone 028 313 8000/8912, or phone.
