Application for Housing and Council Tax discretionary payments

This form is to be used to apply for Discretionary Housing Payments and Council Tax Discretionary Fund payments only.

Discretionary Housing Payments (DHP) and Council Tax Discretionary Fund payments (CTDF) are made from separate funds each with a limited budget. These funds support people who need extra help with their rent or council tax when housing benefit/local housing allowance/universal credit doesn't cover the full amount.

These payments are awarded as a short term measure to help claimants in extremely difficult circumstances. It is strongly recommended that you seek support to achieve a long term solution.

All those wishing to claim should complete sections A and B. For help to pay your council tax please also complete section C and for those needing help to pay rent, please complete Section D.

If you are applying for both payments complete all sections of this form.

Please note: this is a long form which will take some time to complete. You will almost certainly need to research some of the information requested away from the form - this includes completing an income and expenditure breakdown.

Due to technical constraints, if you spend longer than 20 minutes on any individual page the form will time out - you are strongly advised to login to your BRUM Account before completing this form in order to save your progress as you go along.
