The actual grant amount received will depend on the buyers’ income and eligibility.

Grants and Priority Schemes

Buyers with a household income of up to $14,000 can buy BTO flats. Eligible first-timer families can also receive up to $80,000 of housing grants. Read more about the HDB priority schemes to better your chances of getting a flat.

Flexi Flats

Your eligibility for a 2-room Flexi flat is determined after taking into account factors such as your age, the lease tenure, and whether buyers are first-timers, second-timers, or others.

Useful Tips for Flat Buyers

Before you submit your flat application, do read up more on the flat buying process and take note of the following tips:

  • Information on the BTO flats on offer is available on HDB InfoWEB  so you can check out all the details and apply online. You do not have to visit HDB Hub to get the information.
  • If you do not have Internet access, do try to seek support from family and friends instead of visiting HDB Hub or Branches.  Those who need assistance, especially seniors, may call the HDB Sales/ Resale Customer Service Line at 1800 – 866 3066 for assistance.
  • Consider applying for a BTO flat in non-mature towns to enjoy a higher chance of success in securing a flat
  • You can only apply for flat type/ category in 1 town
  • Regular updates on the application numbers for the various flat types/ towns will be published on the HDB InfoWEB, so do check for updates before submitting your application
  • If you wish to take up an HDB housing loan for your flat purchase, a valid HDB Loan Eligibility (HLE) Letter is required when you book a flat. Do check your loan eligibility and apply for an HLE letter.

Applicants are shortlisted using a computer ballot; they are not processed on a first-come-first-served basis. So there is no need to rush to submit your application!

This corridor is also a rich forest habitat that will connect the Western Water Catchment Area and Central Catchment Nature Reserve. Other ‘green’ features in Tengah include spaces for community gardening and urban farming.

This town is also where the use of autonomous vehicles will be piloted to provide residents convenient first-mile-last-mile connection to key transport nodes and amenities. The upcoming Jurong Region Line and bus services will also serve the public transport needs of residents.

Commercial facilities for Tengah are being planned, to complement other shopping and dining options in nearby Bukit Batok town.
