Council Tax Hardship Payments (CTHP)

If you require additional help with your council tax on top of the council tax support you currently receive, you may be entitled to Council Tax Hardship Payments (CTHPs).

CTHPs are means tested payments made at the discretion of the local authority. They are not payments of council tax support. Funding for CTHPs will be met by us, not from central government.  As a consequence, CTHPs will be limited to an agreed amount approved annually. CTHPs can only be considered for people who are already in receipt of council tax support.

Our policy and application form can be found in the documents section below.
