Subsidies And Financial Assistance

Enhanced Subsidies from January 2020

At the National Day Rally 2019, PM Lee announced that means-tested preschool subsidies will be enhanced to make preschools more affordable. The Government will raise the gross monthly household income ceiling for Additional Subsidy and Kindergarten Fee Assistance Scheme (KiFAS) to $12,000, or $3,000 on Per Capita Income (PCI) basis. The Government will also increase the subsidy amounts across all income tiers qualifying for Additional Subsidy and KiFAS. These enhancements will take effect from January 2020. The eligibility criteria for these means-tested subsidies remain unchanged. The infographic below summarises these announcements. Find out more here. ​
