Singapore | Temporary Covid-19 grant of up to $700
Singapore: Temporary Covid-19 grant of up to $700 for lower- to middle-income and self-employed workers.
As the economy is recovering slowly, Singapore government have rolled out a new support scheme for the lower- to middle-income and self-employed workers.
The grant covers those who are self-employed as well.
Eligible workers who have been placed on involuntary no-pay leave for at least a month from May 16 to June 30, or who have suffered an income loss of at least 50 per cent for at least a month over the same period, may apply for the new Covid-19 Recovery Grant (Temporary) (CRG-T).
Under the grant, eligible individuals placed on involuntary no-pay leave may receive a one-off payout of up to $700, while those experiencing significant income loss may receive a one-off payout of up to $500.
MOF said applications will be open from June 3 to July 2.
