Discretionary help paying council tax

Discretionary awards (DA)

In some circumstances we may be able to offer short-term extra discretionary help towards your council tax.

All discretionary help is cash-limited and we cannot help everyone who applies. To be eligible to receive a payment, all applicants must currently be receiving housing benefit or council tax reduction – this does not include tax exemptions or discounts.

You may also qualify for discretionary help with your rent.
