(To watch the full press conference with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The Government will launch a three-year Cash Allowance Trial Scheme in late June to alleviate the livelihood difficulties faced by grassroots families who have been waiting for public rental housing for a long time.   At a press conference this afternoon, Permanent Secretary for Transport & Housing (Housing)/Director of Housing Agnes Wong said the cash allowance is not a rent subsidy and the recipients are not required to use it to pay for rent.   “This is purely to relieve their financial pressure while waiting for public rental housing.      “We aim to send out around 90,000 application forms to the eligible applicants by the end of this month. We urge them to complete the form and return it to us as soon as possible.”   The cash allowance amount is determined by the number of people in a public rental housing application who meet all eligibility criteria.   Along with other criteria
