Exceptional Hardship Payment Scheme


An Exceptional Hardship Policy has been created by Maidstone Borough Council to assist residents who have applied for Council Tax reduction and who are facing ‘exceptional hardship’. This gives further assistance where the level of support being provided by the Council does not meet the full Council Tax liability.

If you are struggling to pay your Council Tax you may be able to get an Exceptional Hardship Payment.
