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.

If you know someone who suits the category and may need financial assistance, spread the news to them!
