Both the West Tamar Council and Meander Valley Council have approved measures to support ratepayers in their municipalities during the coronavirus pandemic.
The West Tamar Council unanimously approved it's Community Care and Recovery Package.
Both councils approved the adoption of a financial hardship policy to support individuals struggling due to the coronavirus.
The hardship policy can postpone rate payments, remit rates or remit late rate payments or penalty interest.
In other news:
The postponement of rates would be paid back after a period of time either in full or in parts.
Remission of rates, according to the policy, would only be considered for "the most serious and exceptional of financial hardship cases."
Residents of both municipalities need proof of sufficient hardship to be eligible for the policy.
Residents can apply for the West Tamar's policy online or print and submit a form at wtc.tas.gov.au, call 6383 6350 or 6323 9300 for assistance.
The West Tamar's package also approved the fast tracking of a number of small capital projects for this and next financial year valued at $2 million.

According General Manager Rolf Vos' report, the fast-tracking of said projects will assist by providing opportunities for local companies where it is possible to do so.
Projects to be fast-tracked include $264,000 worth of road resealing works, $20,000 of work on Kelso foreshore floodgates improvements and $60,500 on shaft sealing works at the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre.
Certain commercial and recreational properties will not be charged rates until September 30.
Doctors and supermarkets, among other businesses, are excluded from the remission.
In total, the relief package will cost the council about $3.5 million.
"Through prudent planning Council has positioned itself to not have any significant debt and current cash flow reserves will support the pressures which will inevitably occur as a result of this pandemic," Mr Vos said in the report.
