No interest loans
Evolve can provide residents with Evo-loans – no interest loans of up to $1200 to help you to buy new household items such as white goods or laptops. We support digital inclusion for our residents, so can also help with other equipment or appliances to help you connect to the internet. We work out a repayment plan with you, based on your financial circumstances, with no interest incurred. Under the Evo-loans program we work with residents to make sure you know which appliances are energy efficient in line with our Energy Strategy.
Evolve provides eligible residents with grants of up to $700 for children (under 18 years) to participate in physical or cultural activities including sport, scouts and cultural dance. This program enables school aged children in Evolve households to participate in programs that contribute to their health and wellbeing and ensure they remain connected to their local community.
