Course Fees

Caregivers Training Grant (CTG) applicable, subject to a co-payment of S$10.

The Caregiver Training Grant (CTG) supports caregivers of seniors and those with disability, including family members and Foreign Domestic Workers (FDWs), to attend caregiver training courses so that they can equip themselves with the necessary skills in caring for the physical and emotional needs of their care recipients. The CTG provides subsidies of up to $200 per eligible care recipient per financial year.

In addition to CTG, households may also apply for Home Caregiving Grant (HCG). HCG is a $200 monthly cash payout 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 Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW). Means-testing applies. For more information, please visit AIC website.
