Utilities

One of the significant expenses in low income households, and one that has grown disproportionately over time, is utilities costs.

ACTCOSS advocates for:

  • Improved energy and water efficiency in low cost housing
  • Measures that will reduce the impact of utilities bills on poverty and exclusion (such as concessions and hardships programs)
  • Improvements in the operation of utility markets so the needs of low income households are better served by these markets
