Housing Assistance Policy

The Housing Assistance Policy, which commenced on 1st January , sets out the basis on which Wyre Forest District Council will offer financial assistance (“Housing Assistance”) for works of adaption, repair or renewal in the private housing sector.

All housing assistance approved under this policy is either discretionary and are therefore subject to the District Council having sufficient funds or mandatory Disabled Facility Grants.
