Font Size

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Introduction To Caregivers Training Grant (CTG)

You may wish to sign up for caregiving courses to learn how to better help your loved ones with their daily care. 

The Caregivers Training Grant is a $200 annual subsidy 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 on the Caregiver Training Courses e-calendar​. 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 registering.

*This refers to a doctor’s memo or a F​unctional Assessment Report (FAR).

The doctor’s memo must indicate the patient’s condition, reason why patient’s condition requires daily care (i.e. how many ADLs required etc.), and length of care required. The FAR should be completed by a registered doctor under Singapore Medical Council (SMC), conditional registered doctor or psychiatrist under any public healthcare institution, registered nurses under Singapore Nursing Board (SNB), or fully registered Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist under Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC).

Persons who are existing beneficiaries of other schemes which have more stringent criteria for disability could use documentation of their receipt of any of the following schemes to prove eligibility. The schemes are Home Caregiving Grant (HCG), Migrant Domestic Worker Levy Concession for Persons with Disabilities, Special Needs Savings Scheme, ElderShield or Interim Disability Assistance Programme for the Elderly (IDAPE).

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions about CTG? We may have the answer here:

Yes, as long as they are the main caregivers of persons with disability or elderly who are Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents.

Eligible caregivers will receive the grant in the form of training fee subsidies.
After choosing a training programme from the approved list, you need to contact the service provider at least two weeks before the course starts to inform them that you are applying for the grant. The trainer will send you an application form to fill out, then submit the completed form for you.​
The grant is tied to the care recipient, not the number of caregivers. If there is more than one caregiver taking care of the same person, all of them are eligible for the grant, but it is still capped at $200 per year. For example, if there are two caregivers taking care of Mr Tan, the total grant still amounts to $200 per year and not $400, as there is only one care recipient.

Yes. More than one caregiver of each care recipient can attend the same training and will be reimbursed only up to $200 grant per care recipient per financial year (April-March).

No. The annual grant of $200 must be used within the period of 1 April to 31 March the next year. Any amount not used will be forfeited.
