Caregivers Training Grant (CTG)
The Caregivers Training Grant (CTG) provides families and Caregivers with a subsidy when they apply for training to care for the care recipient at home.
The CTG allows Caregivers to tap on a $200 annual subsidy to attend CTG-approved training courses. This grant is administered by the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC).
The amount of $200 is allocated to each care recipient every financial year (starting from Apr to Mar the following year).
Home Caregiving Grant (HCG)
The HCG is a $200 monthly cash payout given to patients who have at least permanent moderate disability, i.e. always require some assistance to perform 3 or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).
Each patient is eligible for only 1 HCG, regardless of the number of caregivers the patient has.
You can use the payout to defray caregiving expenses, such as the costs of eldercare and caregiver support services in the community, or hiring of a Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW).
