Discretionary Housing Payment update

Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP)

 

Report by Northampton Defend Council Housing

Northampton Borough Council intends to keep total spend of DHP within the boundary of the Government Contribution of £316,083

LGSS Operations Manager (Northampton) Revenues and Benefits Service:-

Northampton Borough Council has for the last 3 years managed the DHP budget within the boundary of the Government Contribution.  For 2015/16 we do not see any reason why we should not be able to manage the budget in a similar manner and have no plans at this time to take the spending above this level.  This does not mean we would not go above the level if there was exceptional demand and funding was available.
