Buying a flat for the first time and planning to live near your parents’ home? Great news! Proximity Housing Grant (PHG) aims to help more families to buy a resale flat to live with or close to each other for mutual care and support.

Grants sure make housing more affordable, what makes PHG different? Well, the key is in the word ‘proximity.’

PHG encourages Singaporean families to live near or with their parents, hence, your purchased resale flat must be within 4km of your parents’ home or within the same town.
