Discretionary Housing Payments

Each local council gets an annual pot of money to help people who claim housing benefit or the housing element of Universal Credit who need extra, short-term help to pay their rent. 

The council decides who gets these payments but once the yearly pot is used up the council can’t make any more payments.
