If you are on a low income you may be entitled to Housing Benefit to help you pay your rent.
This benefit is paid by Leeds City Council.
Housing Benefit can pay for some or all of your rent.
How much Housing benefit you get depends on your income, what kind of place you want to rent, and your individual circumstances.
Find out more about Housing Benefit on Leeds City Council’s website:
You can apply for Housing Benefit at the same time you apply for Universal Credit at the JobcentrePlus.
This will result in a shortened Housing Benefit Application.
