The Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) Grant is a $120 monthly cash payment given to families who need to hire an FDW to care for their loved ones, who require permanent assistance with three or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).
You can use the payment to offset the cost of hiring an FDW. You may nominate yourself, or a caregiver who is 18 years old and above, to receive your FDW Grant payment.
Each household is eligible for up to two FDWs caring for two different family members at any one time.
You can find more information on employment agencies in Singapore via the Ministry of Manpower's
Employment Agencies and Personnel Search.
