Community Development and Welfare Fund

The CDWF supports community bonding programmes and welfare assistance for needy residents. The CDWF Committee, appointed by the CCC, manages and oversees the disbursement of funds. Those applying for welfare assistance under CDWF should minimally fulfil the following criteria:

a) Residents of the constituency or Division of Group Representation Constituency (GRC) where the CCC serves; and

b) Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents (PRs) or their children must be Singapore Citizen or PR.

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.
