Discretionary discount fund
What is the discretionary discount fund?
From 1 April 2013 council tax benefit no longer exists and has been replaced by the local council tax support scheme.
The local council tax support scheme comes under different rules and regulations, therefore discretionary housing payments cannot cover anyone who receives council tax support only. There is a fund that has been set up for these people who may be in severe financial hardship and it is called the discretionary discount fund.
