Housing Benefit/Council Tax Reduction Application

If you are unemployed or on a low income, Housing Benefit may provide help to pay your rent.

The amount you receive depends on your income and circumstances but cannot be paid for heating, hot water or fuel. Full information is available on our Housing Benefit page.

Housing benefit does not help with council tax but if you are on a low income you may be able to get a reduction in your council tax. For more information on Council Tax reduction, visit our Council Tax page.

Glasgow City Council will treat this as an application for Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP) should your award of Housing Benefit is effective by the spare room subsidy. If you do not want to be considered for DHP, please note this under the "other information" area of the application.

Should you wish to be considered for DHP for any other reason, please apply separately here.

You can make an application for either Housing Benefit, Council Tax Reduction or both through our Online Application.

To make an appointment at your local contact centre or if you require assistance completing the form, phone us on 0141 287 5050.
