    The words ‘housing costs’ are not clearly defined within the regulations of DHP administration. Guidance suggests that DHP’s could cover one-off, lump sum payments such as rent deposits and even to cover payments of capital to a mortgagee where a CTB claimant is at risk of losing his or her home. I would be particularly interested to hear how other LA’s have interpreted this guidance and if you currently use the fund for deposits and mortgage paymens?
    I have also been informed that DWP HQ hope to be in a position to announce further detail of the revised DHP distribution formula in the next 4 weeks. [color=darkred:f3bf9b44b5][/color:f3bf9b44b5]
