A Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP) may be made when Housing Benefit or Universal Credit does not provide enough money to pay your rent. DHPs are not part of the normal Housing Benefit or Universal Credit schemes but are payments that may be made where extra financial support is needed.
You may be entitled to a Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP) if you don't get full Housing Benefit and you're still paying something towards your rent.
