Discretionary Housing Payments Policy
Discretionary Housing Payments (DHPs) provide claimants of housing benefit with further financial assistance to help meet housing costs. The payments are standalone, do not form part of the Housing Benefit entitlement and are additional to the Housing Benefit subsidy.
The policy specifies how Caerphilly County Borough Council will operate the DHP scheme, and explains the factors that will be considered when making a decision to award a DHP.
