Criteria for Proximity Housing Grant (PHG):

In order to encourage mutual care and support within families, the PHG allows more Singaporean citizen families and singles to buy a resale flat to live within a 4 km radius or close to each other from their parents’ or children’s home.

  • You must be a Singapore Citizen, or your family nucleus should consist of at least another Singapore Permanent Resident or a Singapore Citizen

  • You must not have previously received the PHG
  • The lease on the flat must be 30 years or more
  • Your parents or child (single child must be aged 35 and above) who assisted you in qualifying for the PHG need to keep living together with you in the resale flat you intend to buy, or living in an HDB flat or a private property, which is within 4 km of the resale flat you intend to purchase
  • At least one of the parents or child assisting the grant applicant to qualify for the PHG must be a Singapore Permanent Resident
  • The private property must be owned by immediate family members including child or adopted child, siblings, parent(s) or parent(s)-in-law, if your parents or child does not own it
