1.3 Million Households Will Receive the Heating Allowance This Year

ATHENS – The Joint Ministerial Decision which will specify the requirements for the heating allowance which will start to be paid a few while before Christmas and will conclude at the end of April 2023 will be issued this week.

The total amount to be allocated reaches 500 mln euros along with the 25 cents per litre subsidy to the pump, a measure that, in first phase, will be applied until the end of 2022 without excluding the possibility to be extended in case the conditions require it.

The entitled households are about 1.3 mln this year while in 2021 were under 900.000 and this because the assets criterion basis has increased due to the increase in the objective values.

The highest amount that a household will receive will be 800 euros from 750 last year and the lowest 100 euros, the same as in 2021.

It is noted that this year the households that will return to heating oil instead of any other heating fuel (natural gas or electricity) will receive double the amount of the heating allowance
