Glasgow City Council will continue to cover the charges of people affected by the Bedroom Tax through Discretionary Housing Payment in 2015/16 – if this applies to you, or someone you work with, you don’t have to do anything.
The vast majority of awards have already been extended and letters have been issued, those who have not received a letter will do so in the next week or two.
- Discretionary Housing Payment & Other Reasons
If you, or someone you work with, received DHP for a reason other than Bedroom Tax Charges, the award will have expired on 6 April 2015 and a new application needs to be submitted. Applications can be submitted online at www.glasgow.gov.uk/ben or by telephone 0141 287 5050.
