Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP)

You may be entitled to a DHP if you don't get full housing benefit and you're still paying something towards your rent.

If you think you may qualify for extra help, you must complete an application form.  To qualify we'll look at your income and expenditure, and award you a payment if we believe you need extra help to pay your housing costs.  We won't be able to pay you to cover the cost of things included in your rent, like fuel, water or food charges.
