Household support fund

Low income households

Applications for 2023/24 are now closed

A new Household Support Fund (HSF) was announced by the UK government in the Budget on Wednesday 6 March. The HSF will cover the period from April 2024 to September 2024. Further information will be added to these pages once full details of the scheme have been finalised.

We'll be making payments to low income households during 2023/24 as part of the household support fund.

Low income households who are eligible for this extra financial help are those who:

  • only receive housing benefits, and
  • were not eligible for the cost of living payment made by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). 

We will identify those who are eligible from the housing benefit database, meaning you do not need to apply as the payments will be made to you automatically.
