Coalition of Community Groups Letter re Extension of Rental Protections during COVID-19
Shared Statement of Intent for Engaging Tasmanians in Recovery and Rebuilding
Right now, our leaders and governments have the opportunity to sure up thousands of positions and help tackle the gender pay gap by providing fair wages and improving working conditions for women in the workforce.
TasCOSS welcomes the State Government’s announcement that more Tasmanian families will be eligible for the Student Assistance Scheme (STAS) from the 2021 school year.
Tasmanians who are struggling to pay their energy bills as a result of COVID-19 are encouraged to contact their energy provider to discuss payment options. There is a range of assistance available to help Tasmanians manage their energy bills and protections are in place to ensure electricity supply cannot be disconnected.

The current rate of JobSeeker (including the Coronavirus Supplement) is lifting thousands of Tasmanians out of poverty and has allowed families to meet basic household needs and relieve financial stress.
TasCOSS is seeking a Stakeholder Engagement & Policy Officer to lead stakeholder consultation and provide high quality research on energy affordability and other issues impacting on Tasmanians.
