Call for 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 aim to provide temporary relief for up to 500 eligible member firms to ease their financial difficulties. To-date, more than 250 SME members have received assistance from this fund.
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 which aims to support another over 200 eligible member firms.
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. Areas of support include employee well-being (e.g. swab tests, and meals or delivery of meals), refurbishments to office and work premises (e.g. renovations to comply with safe management measures), and transportation (e.g. hire buses to transport employees). We have received more than 50 applications and 25 SME members have already received assistance from this new fund. SCAL urge members who require assistance to submit the applications using the form provided below.
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.
