Possible funding to reduce rent arrears

Allerdale Borough Council is running a one-off exercise to provide lump sum Discretionary Housing Payments to reduce rent arrears.

Anyone living in the Allerdale area who is in receipt of Housing Benefit or the housing element of Universal Credit, and who is in rent arrears because they are struggling financially, may be able to receive some funding to reduce the arrears.

An application form must be completed.  This can be requested by contacting Allerdale Borough Council on 0303 123 1702 or by contacting Impact Housing on 03448 736290 (please ask for someone from the Income Management team).

All completed applications must be returned to Allerdale Borough Council (not Impact Housing) by 24th February 2018.

The following must be completed along with the form:

  1. Recent rent statement
  2. 3 months of bank statements
  3. Proof of being on Universal Credit if applicable


For assistance, please contact the Income Management team on 03448 736290.
