CCC ComCare Fund
Established under the ComCare Endowment Fund (ComCare), the CCF offers interim assistance to needy residents who require urgent and temporary financial relief. The CCC helps to administer the scheme based on the eligibility criteria set by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF). For the amount and duration of assistance rendered by CCF, the CCCs can grant up to three months of financial assistance per application, capped at $200 per month. Residents with longer-term financial needs will be referred to the MSF’s Social Service Offices.
Residents can apply for both the CDWF and CCF at the Community Centres/Clubs. In instances where applications for the CCF or CDWF do not meet the eligibility criteria, the CCC and CDWF committee may seek the help of the Grassroots Advisers to identify and connect residents with other sources of government and community support.
Singaporeans who need assistance can get in touch with their Community Development Councils (CDCs), Family Service Centres (FSCs), Social Service Offices (SSOs) or grassroots leaders for help. Those who do not know who to approach for help can call ComCare Call hotline (1800 222 0000), which can guide callers to the appropriate agency for assistance.
