Discretionary Housing Payments

Burnley Council



The Discretionary Housing Payment fund is a limited amount of money that the Government makes available for Burnley Borough Council to spend to support customers who are in receipt of Housing Benefit or the Housing Element of Universal Credit but who are struggling financially to meet their housing costs.

There are two different types of application that can be made to the DHP fund:

  • An application for an ongoing top - up payment
  • An application for a one-off DHP payment towards moving costs
