Applications are now being accepted for the Government of Ontario’s new Covid-19-SB Energy Assistance Program.
The Government of Ontario is making $8 million available to support small businesses and registered charities who are struggling to pay their energy bills as a result of COVID-19. The COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program for Small Business (CEAP-SB) provides a one time, on-bill credit to eligible electricity and natural gas customers to help them catch up on their energy bills and resume regular payments. Eligible small businesses and charities can apply starting August 31, 2020.
Please note, CEAP-SB funding is limited. Applications will be processed in the order they are received until funding is depleted.
Eligible small business and registered charity customers may qualify for up to $850 in support towards their electricity bill if they primarily use electricity for heating, or up to $425 otherwise. Learn more about eligibility requirements and apply here.
