With effect from 1 July 2023, Overstrand residents receive municipal accounts by e-mail or SMS.
SUBSIDY HOUSEHOLDS - Avoid Paying Back Monies
If you receive an indigent subsidy and own more than one property and/or do not live on the property, contact the municipal office urgently to avoid repayment.
Overstrand Municipality offers indigent residents an opportunity of amnesty to ensure they don’t have to repay benefits.
1. Make sure you qualify for an indigent grant since property valuations may have changed
2. Verify your previous accounts for grants received and see if you are in line with the current approved indigent Policy
3. If not, apply for amnesty to avoid repayment of previously awarded subsidy
The deadline is 31 December 2021.
Who has to repay the subsidy received?
1. Residents who receive a subsidy, but are owners of more than one property and/or
2. Residents who don’t occupy/reside on the property for which the subsidy has been approved
**If you do not meet the criteria after the deadline, monies will have to be repaid for subsidy received.
