Housing benefits are a form of assistance for those who have low income and high living expenses. You must apply to the municipality for housing benefits.



You can apply for housing benefits if you are a low-income household with high living expenses. There is an upper limit on how high your income can be and still be eligible.

Anyone over the age of 18, with some exceptions, can apply. The Norwegian National Housing Bank and the municipality work together on the housing benefit scheme. The municipality processes your application and handles all contact with you.

The deadline for submitting applications is the 25th. Housing benefits are paid out on the 20th of the month after you applied.

If you believe that there is something wrong with the decision, you can appeal to the municipality.

You must report changes that have an impact on the calculation of your benefits.


Anyone over the age of 18 can apply for housing benefits—with the exception of students and individuals in the compulsory military service. You can still apply if you

  • Are a student with no children and your study programme is part of an public programme for work qualification
