Check of 225 euros for heating oil users

The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the economic recovery after COVID-19 caused a sudden surge in energy prices. In order to curb the increase in energy bills for families, the federal government has decided to grant households a net allowance of 225 euros when purchasing fuel oil or propane in bulk, intended for heating the main house. As of July 7th you can visit the website of the FPS Economy to apply for the allowance for gasoil users. This can be done online or you can print the form and send it by post.
