LATEST: Payments set to reduce for homeowners on benefits
Homeowners who receive certain income-related benefits can get help with some of their mortgage and loan payments. The amount that these people receive to help with these costs will reduce soon.

LATEST: New welfare reform and housing section
We've added a new section to this site to explain all the changes that have happened to Housing Benefit under welfare reform and the future changes that are planned. This also includes some information on how your Housing Benefit will be affected when you move from DLA to PIP and a few pages explaining how Universal Credit will work when it's introduced to Northern Ireland later this year.

Each year, the Utilities Regulator issues a list of grants to help tenants and homeowners improve the heating systems in their home. Details of the latest grants have now been released. You can find out more about these grants and other energy efficiency measures in the grants section of this house.
