Apply for Discretionary Housing Payment
People who are entitled to Housing Benefit or Universal Credit Housing Costs and can't afford to pay their rent costs may also be able to claim Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP).
These payments may be used to meet shortfalls in rent where you are affected by the room restriction, benefit cap or other factors that reduce your benefit. They could also be used to help with removal costs.
The Government gives the council a limited amount of money to help in these circumstances, so we will look at your financial circumstances to establish if you have a shortfall in your rent or housing costs.
If you are in the Daventry area please email us at [email protected] in order for an application form to be issued to you.
If you are unable to email please see our contact us page for our phone number and office addresses.

If your area isn't listed, you may be a resident of North Northamptonshire.
