Discretionary Housing Payment

This form has a maximum of 15 pages

Discretionary Housing Payments are not payments of Housing Benefit. They are stand-alone payments and they will therefore be made in addition to Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit.


In order to apply for Discretionary Housing Payments you must:

- be in receipt of Housing Benefit, Council Tax Support, or both; and

- require further assistance in order to meet your housing costs.
