Cash allowance scheme set

(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

Testing record checks conducted

The Government completed an enforcement action on a compulsory testing notice at Tower 6, Island Harbourview in Tai Kok Tsui today, with 12 people found to have breached the notice.   The operation started at about 7am and ended at around 10am, during which about 400 residents' test records were checked.   Noting that the enforcement process may have caused inconvenience to residents, the Government appealed for their understanding as the operation was conducted to curb the spread of COVID-19.
