The Government of Alberta is putting out some inflation relief payments to help Albertans combat the current inflation period.

Eligible Albertans—including seniors, families with children under 18-years-old, and vulnerable residents—will receive $600 over a six month time period.

Applications for the program open up on Jan. 18 and stay open until June 30.

Minister of Affordability and Utilities Matt Jones, said the long-term goal is "to help Albertans deal with the inflationary and cost of living pressures they are facing."

After the six month time period passes, the program will be re-evaluated, and possibly reinstated if needed, Jones added.

More information on the package and where to apply can be found the Alberta government's website.
