Benefits & Support Discretionary Housing Payments

Discretionary payments can help if you are struggling to pay your rent.

You must live in Manchester to apply for them.

To get a discretionary payment towards your rent you must either:

  • be entitled to to some Housing Benefit from us; or
  • be getting Universal Credit that includes something towards your housing costs.

There is no right for anyone to a discretionary payment. We will look at your case to decide if you need extra financial support.

Apply for discretionary payments

See the Council's Discretionary Payments Policy
