Applications open for flats under Parenthood Provisional Housing Scheme
The Housing and Development Board (HDB) has launched its first batch of flats under the new rental housing scheme to support marriage and parenthood.
Applications for the 1,150 flats available opened on Thursday and will close on 20 February.
The scheme provides an affordable housing option for first-timer married couples with children who need temporary housing while waiting for their new HDB flats to be completed.
The flats are in Ang Mo Kio, Bedok South, Boon Lay Drive and Dover Road.
They are primarily vacated Selective En-bloc Redevelopment Scheme flats that are not immediately needed for land redevelopment.
The flats are unfurnished but are retrofitted with basic fittings.
HDB is carrying out the retrofitting works and the flats will be ready for occupation from mid-2013.
