Discretionary help paying rent
Discretionary housing payments (DHP)
In some circumstances we may be able to offer short-term extra discretionary help towards your rent.
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 a discretionary award to help with your council tax.
