$63 million in conservancy and rental rebates for HDB households

OVER 770,000 HDB households will receive $63 million worth of conservancy charges and rental rebates this fiscal year, which is from April 1 to Mar 31 next year.

All eligible households will get service and conservancy charges (SCC) rebates, of which families living in three and four-room flats will get two months worth of SCC rebates.

 

Among poor households renting flats from the Housing Board, those eligible one-room households will get four months of SCC rebates and three months of rental rebates.

 

These rebates are part of the $4 billion GST offset package, announced last year, to help Singaporeans cope with the rise in the GST in July last year.

 

The HDB will send letters to notify all eligible households by the end of this month to inform them of the amount of rebates they will be getting.
