Residents on low income are being told that they may be eligible for assistance with their council tax payments.
With more individuals suffering to manage living expenses, Coventry City Council wants to make sure that people are aware that help is available if low-income households fail to make council tax payments.
Council Tax Support is a system that works in all local authorities across the UK, and working-age households in Coventry can get a discount of up to 85%.
The plan can also cover up to 100% of the cost of council tax for households of pension age.
People receiving Universal Credit or other benefits will not automatically receive council tax assistance, but they can submit a claim to avoid paying more than they need to.
Cllr Richard Brown, Cabinet Member for Finance, said: “Coventry City Council provides a generous council tax support schemes helping to cover up to 85% of the cost of council tax.
“People who are on a very low income can get help with their council tax bill. They should get in touch to find out if they are eligible.
He added: “Currently around 18,000 people are helped by the scheme.”
