Discretionary Housing Payment

Do you receive Housing Benefit? Are you finding it difficult to pay all of your rent? You may be entitled to some short term financial help

Fenland District Council has a limited amount of money each year to provide Discretionary Housing Payments, providing help to meet the shortfall between your rent costs and Housing Benefit payments.

The aim is to prevent homelessness so we may also be able to help with rent deposits, any payments of rent in advance or other lump sum costs associated with a housing need such as removal costs.
