Applications for the SCAL-SBF Foundation Compassion Fund
The SCAL COVID-19 Fund was launched on 8 May 2020 by the Singapore Contractors Association Ltd (SCAL) to help the construction sector ride through the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fund provides eligible member firms with temporary relief to ease their financial difficulties.
In partnership with SBF Foundation and tapping on the SG Together Enhancing Enterprise Resilience (STEER) programme through Enterprise Singapore, the SCAL COVID-19 Fund has been inaugurated as the SCAL-SBF Foundation Compassion Fund.
SCAL members who have not previously applied for assistance under the SCAL COVID-19 Fund can now apply for assistance under this new fund. Eligible companies can receive a one-time support capped at $3,000 based on its local and foreign employee headcount.
To be eligible, the firm must be a SME1 SCAL member (Ordinary/Associate/Trade member/SLOTS) as at 1 April 2020. The firm will also be assessed on its financial difficulty.
