What is Caregiver Training Grant?

The Caregivers Training Grant is a $200 annual subsidy1 that lets caregivers attend approved courses to better care for their loved ones. The $200 subsidy is provided for each care recipient every financial year (from April to March the following year). If multiple caregivers of the same care recipient wish to attend training, the $200 would need to be shared among the family members.

The list of courses available under the Caregivers Training Grant can be found in the course catalogue here. The trainer could conduct the class in your home, or in a classroom at a training centre. You can also use a computer or other electronic devices to learn, by watching videos and reading training materials.

You must pay at least $10 after registering2. Please refer to AIC website for more information.

In addition to CTG, households may also apply for Home Caregiving Grant (HCG). HCG is a $200 monthly cash payout (HCG has been enhanced on 1 March 2023, increasing the HCG payouts from the existing $200 per month to up to $400 per month) to support your loved ones with at least permanent moderate disability, i.e. always require some assistance to perform 3 or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).  This grant can be used to defray the costs of caregiving expenses, such as the costs of eldercare and caregiver support services in the community, or hiring of a Migrant Domestic Worker (MDW). Means-testing applies. For more information, please visit AIC website.
