Utility Payment Services

Carer And Teenage Daughter Looking At Laptop Together

Meraki Foundation provides support for households by offering assistance with utility payments, where families are struggling and payments are overdue. This support is by appointment with our Coordinator, Maria.

The payment schemes that Maria can assist with are EAPA (Energy Accounts Payment Assistance), and PAS (Payment Assistance Scheme, Sydney Water).


Everyone needs access to clean water, however adverse circumstances can make it difficult to continue paying your bill. Meraki’s qualified Coordinator, Maria, will discuss your situation with you, and if you’re eligible, can apply PAS credits to reduce your debt.
